The LATCH Project works to house the young, single homeless in the spare rooms of local hosts but our work doesn't end there. Once housed, we find that the best outcomes towards independent living come from continued contact, counselling and mentoring. Further funding enables us to create more time and opportunity to listen and to meet them where they are. We then create personal support plans to ensure clients find real purpose and meaning in our community.

How can you make a huge difference to the lives of more than one homeless person?
A one-time donation could form part of a Perpetually Self-Replenishing Fund (PSRF) helping a homeless Latch client to get housed and pay one month’s rent upfront. Typically, £408.50 covers one month's rent and your £10/£20/£30/£50/£100 donation could remain a part of this reusable fund, forever! HOW? Well, the newly housed client applies for housing benefit, LBB are currently quoting 22days processing time but this doesn't ensure payment is received within a month. So it's possible the rent due date will be missed completely if the client's earnings or benefits are insufficient to cover it.
This is where LATCH can step in with your contribution and the PSRF - we pay the Host upfront and this is repaid to the charity once the client's housing benefit arrives. The facility then comes back in once again on standby, ready to be "re-used" for another client. This helps to remove the unspoken financial stress or tension between a client and their host, especially if the client also happens to be looking for work, still. You can help to break this cycle of worry.
To set up a one time donation or standing order hit the Donate button below and please do opt for Gift Aid which raises an additional 25% on top of your donation. Select one of our one time donation options or customise your donation - thank you for your support.
