HOMELESSNESS IN THE UK

FACING A HARSH WINTER

According to official figures, the number of people facing homelessness has increased from 86,240 in June 2019 to 98,300 in June 2020 by 14% With the current global crisis and economic instability, these numbers are likely to go up creating scores of new people at risk of homelessness.”

1 in every 200 people in the UK has to face some form of homelessness. Being deprived of the bare necessities of life takes its toll on a person’s mental and physical well-being. Homeless people are 9 times more likely to take their own life as compared to an average person!

This year, with unemployment rates at the highest that have been in the past three years, the number of people that are suffering has skyrocketed. For many families, this means being unable to pay their heating bills, going to bed hungry and being too ashamed to ask for help.

Now, in our second wave lockdown, the government funding for Everyone In is shrinking and more people are being laid off work. What we face ahead is a long, bitter winter, where people will battle the cold in cramped places, with no warmth. Hardship and difficulty is not always visible, and many people go unnoticed, embarrassed to ask for help and continue to suffer in silence.

SPREADING THE WARMTH

Winter brings with it a new set of challenges, putting millions of vulnerable people across the world in danger. ATI has pledged to not only help the homeless and the rough sleepers this winter, but also the vulnerable people in need of warm clothing, food and support, people who are struggling to pay their bills, or buy food for their families.

Though basic, these are the items that can help save lives. When temperatures fall below freezing points, helpless people that are ill equipped for the cold succumb to hypothermia, pneumonia and starvation. Your donation of £50 can provide someone with warmth and comfort.
