Homelessness First Weekend of Lent Contemplation prompts

Despite a rise in homelessness government funding to services that help individuals avoid homelessness has been cut by 45% in the last 6 years whereas young people sleeping rough has doubled.

Take time today to pray for homeless young people.

Saturday 4th March

Safe housing is the most effective short term solution, but funding limits availability.

How many homes have you lived in?, collect 5p for each.

Sunday 5th March

Given that the number of rough sleepers is rising, collect 5p for every hour of warm sleep, last night.

Monday 6th March

Hostels can be scary places for a young person. Yet sometimes these are the only options available.

Collect 50p if your bed felt safe last night.
