82 rough sleepers provided with emergency shelter

Your donations helped us provide emergency accommodation to rough sleepers this winter and have extra bed spaces available in severe weather. You’ve helped provide rough sleepers with a safe, warm place to sleep as well as access to washing facilities and life essentials like toiletries and clean, dry clothing. Our team are always on hand to provide rough sleepers with advice and support.

Baz was sleeping rough in the Winter before he came to us, “Alabaré’s winter provision is a blessing and without it I would be on the streets everyday. Instead I have a warm bed, hot meal and shower which makes you feel more human and connected with the real world. It has saved me from destruction.”

Your donations have meant we can give them hot food and access to washing facilities and clothing they may not otherwise have.

672 vulnerable people have a safe place to call home

Our aim is to break the cycle of homelessness for good. Your donations mean we can work with each person coming to our Drop In Centre, to help them access benefits, healthcare and housing. Alabaré also have supported accommodation which offers a long term solution to homeless people.

Your donations help us provide 337 bed spaces to homeless and vulnerable people across our 55 homes. As well as having their own room and shared use of a kitchen, our residents can take part in activities and training courses to help them learn practical skills such as budgeting and job searching.
