Crisis is delighted to have partnered with the Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford, and their international grant-making partner, GlobalGiving, to support the wellbeing of people facing homelessness this Christmas.
Since the outbreak of coronavirus, the Fund has supported non-profit organisations across the world in their relief efforts, and have chosen to support Crisis this Christmas with a donation of £15,000.00 to enable the delivery of wellbeing packs to people experiencing homelessness across the UK.
With the Fund’s support, Crisis will be able to provide guests in London and people accessing our Skylight centres across the UK with wellbeing packs, which will contain a range of items to support mental health and wellbeing, and will allow people to remain connected to friends, family, and the vital support services they need to help end their homelessness.
Digital accessories will enable people to remain connected to friends, family and vital support services to support their mental health, whilst health and wellbeing essentials, as well as additional treats, will help to ensure that they feel valued at what can be a particularly isolating and difficult time.
Ford UK have also assisted with the distribution of these packs across the UK with a vehicle loan, enabling our teams to rapidly distribute equipment and supplies to our London centres and our 11 Skylights across the UK.
Thank you to all at Ford for your incredible support and generosity this Christmas.
