The Passage

Urgent Appeal: From Street to Home

Please help ensure that we can keep our services running over the coming months to support homeless people who may be affected by Coronavirus. Our services to those on the streets and those we have helped off the streets are under immense pressure as the Covid-19 virus threat grows. With staff and volunteers taking the strain, The Passage needs your support.

  • “After the end of my last relationship, I was sleeping on night buses just to stay safe. I was suicidal, I had tried to take my life many times. Without The Passage I would not be here.”

    — Nomonde, client at The Passage

  • “I am an example of someone that The Passage has saved. The Passage can help you to achieve. Some people really need guidance and this place provides it. My advice for others is not to let go. You can get help.”

    — Christopher, former client at The Passage

Situation

Help homeless people stay safe from Coronavirus. With the situation changing daily, we are doing all that we can to ensure that our vital services for those who are street homeless remain operational. London is two weeks ahead of the rest of the UK in terms of the Coronavirus crisis and with greater restrictions likely to be in place very soon, the safety of our clients is paramount. The Passage is on the frontline, looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our society, many of whom already have poor health and are unable to self-isolate; in an area where Covid-19 is most prevalent.

Solution

The Passage is finding solutions for homeless people who simply can’t self-isolate. Our dedicated staff will be there ensuring our three accommodation projects remain open, and that our day services find innovative ways to support those on the streets, all the while taking every precaution to minimise the risk of infection. We need to raise £340,000 urgently to deliver our vital services. Now more than ever we rely on the kindness of people like you. The next few months are going to be very challenging and your help is going to be more important than ever.
