Welcome to the official blog for Action Homeless Leicester. We are a local charity and provide support to people who are experiencing homelessness in Leicester and Leicestershire. We have over forty years of experience in tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness and over 350 people access our service every year.
At Action Homeless we provide a full range of services to homeless individuals and families to help them create more positive futures for themselves. Clients not only receive accommodation, but have access to intensive support, counselling, training and advice. We believe that homeless people have the potential to transform their lives and we aim to provide them with the support they need to achieve their goals.
This blog is a space for us to show the human story behind homelessness and give a snapshot into the lives and experiences of our residents. Homeless people often feel marginalised and excluded from society, so this blog aims to give them a voice and an opportunity to tell their side of the story.
We also hope that by following this blog, our supporters will gain an insight into the roles of our employees and what it is we actually do at Action Homeless.
