We strive to make our client's journey into independent accommodation as simple as possible, and are pleased to now be able to assist with things we take for granted, such as washing machines, cookers, and fridge-freezers.
Each year, Arc are proud to assist clients into their own independent accommodation, and thanks to our kind donors, we offer £150 to spend at Furnitrust to help them buy anything they might need. In November, we were so pleased to have been awarded funding for the 'Move-In Fund' from Somerset Community Foundation, assisting our clients to really settle in and thrive in their new homes! Since receiving this funding, we have spent just over £4000 to provide items such as cookers, washing machines, sofas, carpets, fridges, curtains and much more! Being able to help people with moving into their own homes after experiencing homelessness is such a vital part of our work and the costs associated with this are often overlooked, so having that additional help is so important. One of our client’s, ‘Guy’, was recently helped by our ‘move-in fund’ and told us just how much it helped - “The money has definitely helped me settle into my new property, with less to worry about, it really has made a massive difference to me. I am truly very thankful for all the help, advice and support I have received from everyone at Arc”
