A charity working with homeless people are in need of more support from the local communities they work with, during the Coronavirus outbreak.
SPEAR, a charity working with homeless people in South and West London are in need of support from their local communities. SPEAR operate in Richmond, Merton, Wimbledon, Sutton, Kingston and Wandsworth, helping those who are vulnerable.
During the Coronavirus outbreak, their services are needed more than ever, and their front-line key workers continue to help the most vulnerable in the community.
The key workers are currently raising funds to be able to continue helping some of the most vulnerable people, including those with mental and physical health issues.
Created to help communities where anyone experiencing homelessness can get effective support, SPEAR’s mission is to enable homeless people in South and West London to find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future.
SPEAR recognise homelessness as more than a housing issue, building communities in which everyone has a place to call home. In 2019, the charity was involved in 7,000 cases of homelessness, many of whom were helped into housing and permanent employment.
