This winter we are inviting you to help local people in crisis. Fuel poverty is on the increase in Nottingham and rough sleeping numbers are at their highest in over 5 years. For the individuals who make up the 15,500 visits to our drop-in session per year, the prospect of the impending cold weather will present yet another challenge to overcome. For some, the arrival of winter presents a direct risk to life. With your help we can ensure that local people get the help they need this winter. Rough sleeping is inherently detrimental to life and we are passionate about helping people to progress out of crisis and into independence. David was sleeping rough and addicted to alcohol when he first came to us and now he is employed and working to support those who were in his predicament:

“Coming to Friary was the first and more important step,” he says. “Being on the streets I was terrified. The weather was terrible and I had no idea what to do. Coming to Friary showed me there were practical steps to take and gave me back a bit of independence. They helped me with everything. When you are homeless you feel very worthless. You live everyday like it’s your last. Friary gives you back your self-confidence.”

Together we can work to share the warmth this winter and help people like David to get off the streets and into suitable accommodation. Your support can make this happen.
If you feel comfortable to donate some or all of your winter fuel payments to the Friary please either
