Worksop charity HOPE has been boosted by a donation of doors and door framesfor their new move-on accomodation project by the CRASH charity andPiper Joinery through their parent company A J Morrisroe & Sons.
The house on Queen Street in Worksop, will be a six-bedroom shared accommodation, for those ready to take the next step back to independence.
This facility will add to HOPE’s range of accommodation for those in need.
It is sorely needed as the number of people sleeping rough has risen 30 per cent in the last year.
HOPE’s aim is to offer more accommodation, to prevent anyone sleeping on the streets, and them re-build their lives.
Alan Diggles, HOPE chief executive, commented: “Homelessness has doubled in the last three years, and despite the Government saying that it is putting more money into the pot of support, we have seen none.
“Local services are under pressure with austerity biting hard.
“Without the support of organisations like CRASH and Piper Joinery and their obvious willingness to help charities like HOPE, more people in crisis would have nowhere to go.
“We’re extremely grateful.”
