An outreach worker isn't just for Christmas....

Help Simon on the Streets extend its reach by employing one full-time outreach support worker to provide intensive, emotional and practical support to people sleeping rough throughout the county.

Simon's Christmas Appeal

West Yorkshire is facing a worsening homelessness crisis. As a result of government policies, the numbers of those finding themselves on the streets is not forecast to reduce, rather it is forecast to increase drastically year on year. Crisis recently forecast a rise in the number of rough sleepers by 78% over the next decade.

It is perfectly natural that Christmas is the season where we begin to consciously think about those less fortunate than us. The highly visible rough sleepers on our streets are often in the forefront of our minds. It is natural that our instincts will tell us to help others, we might buy food or a hot drink for rough sleepers we pass by, but when the season is over, it is natural for this feeling of charity to fade. Unfortunately, the feelings of loneliness and isolation for those living on the streets continues as their plight fades from the forefront of people's minds.

As our thoughts turn to spending the festive season with our families and friends, the team at Simon on the Streets is planning a Christmas Prize Draw to raise money to support the homeless and vulnerable in the Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield areas.
