Action Homeless is a local charity supporting individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness in Leicester and Leicestershire. We provide a range of accommodation including a specialist project for women and children who have had to flee their homes. In addition we provide an extensive support programme which offers access to tenancy training, volunteering opportunities, harm reduction services, money management advice, confidence building activities and health and wellbeing sessions.
Our aim is to enable people to rebuild their lives and leave homelessness behind for good. Action Homeless leads the Homeless Leicester Partnership (HeLP) in coordinating a ‘no second night out’ response to rough sleeping in Leicester and we are committed to bringing an end to rough sleeping in Leicester.
Action Homeless delivers the Building Blocks Project supporting Children who are experiencing, or have experienced Homelessness.
Action Homeless also mages the Emergency Food Provision for Leicester City Council as part of their Community Support Grant Scheme (CSGS).
