Help for homeless this winter
Nottingham’s Rough Sleeper Hotline will be kept going 24 hours a day over the winter period thanks to a donation from The Nottingham.
The donation will pay for up to 200 calls which are followed up by a specialist team to get rough sleepers off the streets and into a place of safety. At its peak, the hotline take up to 30 calls a day.
David Marlow, chief executive at The Nottingham said “When we set up ‘Doing Good Together’ in 2011, we looked to the heritage of the business for inspiration and identified homelessness as one of the areas in which we wanted to make a difference. When we looked across the East Midlands to find a charity to support, the answer was Framework.
“But we’re also delighted to have supported many more local projects too through Grants for Good.”
Emmanuel House in Nottingham is just one of those charities which has benefitted from a monetary donation and voluntary help from staff of The Nottingham. The drop-in centre in Nottingham also received a collection of warm clothing and Christmas gifts from the branch on Parliament Street and head office.
Over 2,000 people socially isolated, homeless or at risk of homelessness have benefitted from projects supported by The Nottingham in 2017.
