Hope has received vital funding to ensure Nottinghamshire's only emergency hostel, Hope House, stays running throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

A £1,500 grant from The Morrisons Foundation has been awarded to help manage a coronavirus outbreak in Hope House. This critical funding will be spent on ensuring Hope can control the risk of infection when new clients come forward asking for a bed at the hostel. 

Nottinghamshire County Council also awarded £5,000 funding to be spent on covering the cost of rising utility bills, cleaning products and PPE for the next 3 months. 

Lucy Binch, CEO of Hope Community Services, said;

"We are really delighted to have been awarded these two generous grants that will help us continue to run Hope House and reduce the risk of a coronavirus outbreak. 

"Being the only emergency hostel in Worksop still taking new homeless clients in and working with rough sleepers, it's vital that we're able to continue our work."

At Hope, we're incredibly grateful for the support we receive from funders and the general public. All donations, large or small, ensure we can keep providing vital support to homeless people.To make a donation to our emergency appeal, click here
