"A lot of companies are giving to larger charities and smaller, non-profits like us are getting forgot about.

“What is really concerning is that while vulnerable people are getting housed in hostels, hotels and other accommodation, they are getting no support for some of the complex mental and physical health issues that they might have.

“This puts them at an even greater risk during the current pandemic and makes our service even more vital.”
