Barnabus are stepping out to launch our ‘New Homes – New Future’ project. Enabling us to have our very own supported property to promote recovery and independence for people who need intensive support to they can learn to thrive in a home.

Barnabus already supports 31 people with experience of homelessness in private rented accommodation through our resettlement tenancy scheme having an 85% success rate of people remaining in their tenancies and moving on to independent living.

Through the support of the charity Green Pastures, Barnabus is now in the exciting position where we will be purchasing a property which will house 6 people experiencing homelessness. Providing them with a home where they will have round the clock support.

The New Home – New Future project will fund a full time support worker and also pay to furnish the building, including 6 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and dining room. Your pledge will make this possible.

How will we fund it and how can you help?

We have applied to be included in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.

We want to raise £40,000 (including match funding) but we need your help to make it possible.

In order for the Big Give to include us in their match funding challenge, we need key supporters to get behind our ‘New Homes – New Future’ project right now.

We need your help to gain a total of £10,000 in pledges by 2nd September 2022.

Once we have raised £10,000 in pledges, the Big Give will then include our project in their online Big Give Christmas Challenge, December 2022. We will then raise £20,000 through general giving and every gift received will be match funded and doubled to reach our £40,000 goal, with £10,000 from pledges and £10,000 from Big Give partners.

Please make a pledge so that we can successfully launch our exciting ‘New Homes – New Future’ project and break the cycle of homelessness together.

Please make your Pledge by 5pm Friday 2nd September 2022.

N.B. Payments for these pledges will not be needed by the Big Give until January 2023.
