Yesterday, Action Homeless joined forces with the Down Not Out community media agency to host an AGM and Showcase Event at the Phoenix in Leicester. The event was a great success with over 60 people attending to find out more about the projects and services on offer to people who are experiencing homelessness.
Mark Grant, Action Homeless Chief Executive, kicked things off with a round-up of the last 12 months and a look at Action Homeless’ plans for the future. Guests viewed the new strategy film which sets out Action Homeless’ vision for the next 5 years. The event also marked the official launch of Action Homeless’ Winter Appeal which this year focuses on Bridge House, a project supporting women and children who have had to flee their homes.
The Down Not Out team then took to the stage to talk about their successes and presented a number of their volunteers with awards, celebrating personal achievements and highlighting the importance of the project for all those who have been involved. Keep your eye out for a brand new film all about the project coming soon.
We’d like to thank everyone who attended and helped to make the event a success.
