People experiencing street homelessness in England and Wales have limited access to lifesaving information such as the weather forecast . They are cut off from society and have very little contact with the outside world, this has a detrimental effect on their mental health and makes it much harder for them to reintegrate into society.
The provision of radios to other marginalised groups living in these circumstances has been shown to significantly alleviate social isolation when given radios. They provide something most of us take for granted; a critical link with society and the world around us. The capacity to listen to the news, or follow a football team, can massively reduce the levels of social exclusion felt by people, Bringing about significant psychological benefits.
Wind-Up Companion will give wind-up radios with an LED torch to people visiting established shelters on the ground so that when a homeless person leaves a shelter this Christmas they have something to cherish that can improve their lives through 2017.
Included with each ticket is a glass of bubbly, a plate of festive food and an evening of festive Charity fun:
- Mini yorkshire puddings with roast turkey & gravy - homemade pigs in blankets - brie & fig crostini -a glass of prosecco
