The Morrisons Foundation recognises that homeless people are particularly vulnerable to Covid-19 because they are more likely to have underlying health conditions and are less able to access basic sanitation.
Homelessness charities are raising concerns that if someone is sleeping rough or in a crowded night shelter, it’s impossible to self-isolate and maintain social distance so help is needed more than ever before.
Registered charities that care for the homeless can apply for support to cover three broad areas:
● Outreach and support for rough sleepers, including provision of essentials
● Delivery of services in hostels and shelters
● Information and advice
