From midday 30th November to midday 7th December, all donations to Justlife are doubled when made on the Big Give website. This year, we’re aiming to raise £20,000 which will be doubled to £40,000 as part of the Christmas Challenge, at no extra cost to supporters. All funds raised will go towards delivering 4 core projects supporting homeless people this winter.
Health Engagement - Helping homeless people address their physical / mental health needs
Mobile Justlife - Supporting hard-to-reach people on the doorsteps of their accommodation
Social Connection - Improving confidence and social skills through befriending relationships
Targeted Referrals - Housing / health / wellbeing support for homeless prison leavers
