2021 Winter Warmer Pack Campaign

This Winter, thousand of individuals and families in the UK will experience some form of homelessness. With the end of the eviction ban, cut in universal credit, the furlough scheme coming to an end, many people living with financial pressures will be edged into homelessness. They will face the harsh reality of sleeping on the streets, sofa surfing or desperately trying to find shelter in sheds and garages.

Each year at this time, Hand on Heart support hundreds of people facing homelessness with our flagship Winter Warmer Pack Campaign. 🍂❄️🍁

The project will serve winter essential items to rough sleepers as the cold dark months set in.

On this occasion, HoH will also support evacuees from Afghanistan who are settling in the UK.
