Moving forward our focus will remain on providing responsive services with a vision to provide support networks across the county for those in need and forever homes to those who require housing.” 

The charities Chair, Robert Sharp said: "It is an honour to be the Chair of the Board of Trustees as we celebrate our 20th anniversary. The charity has gone from strength to strength from its small and humble beginnings to today being one of the leading partners in tackling homelessness and supporting the vulnerable across Leicestershire. I would like to thank all Trustees who have volunteered their time and expertise across those years, you have played a big part in this success.

So many individuals have received life changing support over those 20 years from a highly dedicated and committed group of staff who never fail to meet the day’s challenge. Supported by a number of local business partners, educational institutions and local authorities we continue to expand both the number of people we are able to help and the range of services we can offer. Thanks to you all.
