About this cause
We're a group who want to help homeless families and those at risk of being made homeless, regardless of the reason. We provide temporary accommodation for the whole family for as long as it's needed. We establish why they lost their home, get them back on track and ultimately back into a home of their own. Family is critical and our aim is to keep families together throughout the journey.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Losing their home can be traumatic for any family, particularly for children who may lose access to friends, their garden and even the family pet. Nearly half of adults at The Gingerbread Centre lost their home due to mental health issues. By joining our group activities they can see that they are not alone, which is beneficial for their wellbeing.
