In 2017 we raised £133,632.36. We aim to raise £1,000,000 by December 2018 by engaging our network and the public. In order to do this, we host a range of events and fundraisers including: a trek to Everest Base Camp, fashion shows and Sleep Outs.
To understand the scale of the crisis, it is important to know that 'homeless' is an umbrella term. There are four different types of homelessness:
- Rough sleeping – sleeping in the open air commonly includes streets, doorways, parks or bus shelters
- In temporary accommodation – the length of time someone can stay in temporary accommodation can vary from one night to indefinitely
- Hidden homelessness – people who have been homeless, but found temporary accommodation by staying with friends, family, squatting or other insecure accommodation
- Statutory homeless – Local authorities have a duty to secure a home for some groups of people. Every year, tens of thousands of people apply, but due to limited space and funding, very few are successful
Homelessness and poverty are more common than most people realise, with over 250,000 people without a permanent home in England alone. 83,000 of which are between the ages of 16 and 25. The Fine & Country Foundation is working with a range of local and national charities to help reduce these figures.
We are partnered with End Youth Homelessness, a national campaign formed of nine homeless charities across the country. Through their knowledge and expertise, we are able to provide regional support with a national impact.
Internationally, we are working with ActionAid to support Happy Home for girls in Bangladesh. For more information and the full story about our ongoing support, please click here.
Our second international project is based in Nepal. We are working to rebuild a village called Thangpalkot1 which was destroyed by earthquakes in 2015. Sadly, 86 of the 94 homes in the village were brought to the ground. The government of Nepal has only been able to support those living within a two hour radius of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Thangpalkot1, is six and a half hours away from Kathmandu by road. Therefore, it has not received any assistance other than that provided by supporters like The Fine & Country Foundation.
