Crawley Open House provides support and services for those suffering the effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, discrimination or other forms of social exclusion.
They have a day centre providing hot meals and food parcels, afternoon classes and advice on health, resettlement, form-filling etc. and also have a 24-bed hostel and three move-on houses.
Since the news that West Sussex County Council is looking to cease the funding of Crawley Open House, they have been looking for ways of becoming self-funding.
They have started their first ever regular donating appeal, aiming to get 1,000 people to pledge £10 each month to save our services for those suffering from homelessness and social exclusion. This could secure the future of Crawley Open House.
If you can give £10 a month or any amount monthly, large or small, you will be making a huge difference to the future of hundreds of people.
Will you be 1 in a 1000?
You can make a difference to so many
