    Risk

    The risk of trying to house so many homeless people though Homeless is the responsibility of the Local Authority, but they have made it clear that they barely have the resources to deal with a problem that is spiraling out of control. Our target is 500 homes over a 5 year period and strict legislation governing vulnerable people must be strictly observed. The High quality and the standard of our Units will influence the success of our project and would be a threat to Bed & Breakfast stays.

    Reporting

    We will report to donors by sending a monthly newsletter updating them on successful outcomes, progress and future plans ; Invitation to our Annual General Meeting and regular Fundraising Dinner & Dance Events
