I hope you may be aware that there has recently been a widespread consultation process concerning the creation of a Homelessness Charter for Leicester.

The Charter will be launched by the Bishop of Leicester, the Right Reverend Martyn Snow, and Leicester’s City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, on October 29th.

I would be delighted if you could join us for the launch, which will take place in Leicester Cathedral, Peacock Lane, LE1 5PZ, at 2pm. You are invited to join us for a sandwich lunch prior to this from 1pm.The launch event will include people experiencing homelessness, citizens of Leicester, representatives of voluntary and statutory organisations, institutions and other public services, faith groups and businesses.

The Charter is a call to action: it aims to establish principles and values which will enable people and organisations to work together better to tackle homelessness, trying to prevent it happening as well as more appropriate support for those affected by it. It will also provide a framework for improvement; enabling change; raising awareness; advice and a co-ordinated approach.

The idea for the Charter came out of a homelessness forum, hosted by the Church of England at St Martins House Conference Centre in Leicester, which brought together agencies small and large and including, for example, the Police, the Red Cross, the Y Centre, One Roof Leicester and Street Pastors.

This forum commissioned a small working group comprising representatives from Leicester City Council, Action Homeless, SoundCafe, Leicester and the Church of England to take forward the idea of a Charter.

Attendees at the launch event will be asked to adopt the principles and values of this Charter, pledge their support and work together with others to tackle key challenges and to prevent homelessness in the city.

We shall also begin to shape ways in which we collectively would like to move forward, seeking attendees’ expertise and inviting them to join in actively.  The Charter is significant, but only as a framework for good and effective action ‘on the ground’.

For single bookings please book on https://homelessnesscha...te.co.uk

For group bookings and any queries, please mail the details to myself alison.adams@leccofe.org by Thursday October 18th.

 

Yours sincerely,

This year we would like to ask if you would donate to the Zinthiya Trust Food  Appeal – or even host a collection point for the Trust if you have the facilities to do so.  We would be able to collect any donations.

Our reserves are at one of their lowest points this year and demand is increasing.  The Trust supports people needing emergency food as well as supporting those in long term poverty through our Partner the Leicester Community Shop.  The community shop provides affordable food, toiletries and household items all year round to people struggling to make ends meet.
