Funding from the Big Lottery Community Fund and the Police and Crime Commissione


 

Some great news from One Roof Leicester…

We wanted to share with you the fantastic news that we have secured funding for a permanent night shelter for Leicester. The funding from the Big Lottery Community Fund and the  Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire means that we have secured £210k for the next three years. We still have the small amount of £90k still to raise over the but we know with your support and help we will achieve this.

Both funders recognised the success of the current ORL Winter Night Shelter, which runs for 3 months rotating across 7 venues and offers 10 bed spaces per night to guests was due to the commitment and hard work of all the venues and our volunteers who make beds, cook food, play games and befriend the guests.

The funding we have secured means that we can run a static night shelter from one venue for 9 months and continue with the rotating shelter for the three months in winter. It also means that we can increase the number of bed spaces from the current 10 to 20 so that we can help even more people.

Securing this funding is a huge achievement for us and it would not have been possible without the support of our volunteers and WNS venues. You have done an incredible job over the last 3 winters we hope that you will all continue with us on the next step of our journey.
