Since it was founded 30 years ago, Acton Homeless Concern has been at the heart of its local community. Support comes from all quarters: churches; faith organisations; schools; colleges, local businesses; charitable foundations and many individuals. These can range from helping our Christmas street collections or organising charity events like dinner dances and golf days. To all of them - THANK YOU!
"Volunteering at Acton Homeless
Concern gives me a chance to give a little back to our community in Acton. It shows me that no matter who we are, we all need a little bit of help sometimes and in giving that help we have a chance to show the best side of ourselves".
"When the world's problems often
seem overwhelming, Acton Homeless
Concern represents kindness and love
that can change the lives of the people
"The experience was very eye opening
and I was happy I was able to offer
assistance to individuals in need".
A continuing role for Acton Homless Concern is to be an advocate for those who come to us for help. To do this we are building and maintaining networks of public and private organisations, interfaith relationships, charities, voluntary groups, schools, colleges & universities.
We receive support from across the community, with the active involvement of schools, faith groups and businesses. We seek opportunities to talk to all kinds of groups and organisations to publicise the benefits that can be achieved caring for vulnerable members of society.
We take an inclusive approach by helping anyone who needs it regardless of social inequalities, their ethnicity, gender, disability or sexuality.
We campaign to highlight the problems of homelessness. Our
manager has taken part in public lectures to educate residents on
what is being done for the homeless and how the public can make
contributions in a variety of ways.
We are an active member of Ealing Homelessness Forum, a regular gathering of charities and voluntary organisations who provide a range of services in support of those homeless or threatened with homelessness. The forum enables groups to cross-refer clients, offer and exchange information & training.
