Real Change Guildford has launched!
What is Real Change?
Real Change is a community initiative for people to give money to the homeless without directly giving it to them on the streets.
The aim of this initiative is to help all of the ‘invisible’ homeless and the people we do not see on a daily basis. The initative is supported by Riverside Housing, Guildford Action, Experience Guildford and VASWS. Several business are involved including Sainsbury’s on the Guildford High Street.
The idea of the initiative is that people who are homeless will be able to apply directly for grants that will help with accommodation, clothing and food. The maximum amount that can be applied for is £2,000.
The application process will be simple and decisions will be made quickly with small grants being made immediately and larger ones going to a panel. All people who are homeless can apply for this and there is no criteria they must meet, applications can be made through partner organisations.
