The Homelessness Partnership have launched an urgent appeal to support families in temporary accommodation this festive period.

It is estimated that 158 children in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole could spend this festive season in bed and breakfast hotels, because they have no place to call home.

Due to large numbers of families reaching out for help, the Homelessness Partnership BCP urges you to help in one of three ways: donate, let a property, volunteer.

The Homelessness Partnership BCP is made up of more than 40 local organisations that have signed a charter committing "to end homelessness in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole by ensuring everyone has a safe place to live that they can call home". It is driven by people with lived experience of homelessness, along with representatives of statutory bodies (council, police, health and probation), businesses, charities, faith groups, universities and educational institutions.
