How we use your donations

[ 0 ] November 19, 2012

Whilst Jimmy’s does receive statutory funding, much of our work and the services we provide are only possible thanks to the kindness and generosity of our supporters. All of the money we receive from donors is spent on services and support for our guests, and the donations we receive make a real difference to the lives of so many – around 300 people stay at Jimmy’s each year:

 

 

However, we do have to make a little stretch a long way. It costs:

  • £26.00 to provide a bed, evening meal and breakfast for one person each night
  • around £700 each month to run the laundry facilities
  • £150 per week to provide sports opportunities for guests
  • an average £1,500 per month for heating and hot water
  • over £1,500 per month to provide advocacy and support services to guests to help them with health, benefits and legal services liaison
  • £600 monthly to maintain our building’s high level of safety and security

We do so value and appreciate all your support and ask that you continue to give generously. Every penny we receive gives our guests a greater chance of moving away from rough sleeping and finding stability in their lives.
