The Housing and Homelessness Team at Cotswold District Council are currently placing all homeless people in Temporary Accommodation however, they have also been able to move some people into more permanent accommodation. The problem they are experiencing is that the people moving into the accommodation have nothing and are going into unfurnished properties. Charity shops are closed along with most other shops and outlets so providing the bare basics for them is extremely difficult. Observing social distancing the Housing and Homelessness team are asking for assistance from the wider community for basic items. They would be able to arrange pick up for large items and can collect smaller items if they are left outside at a pre-arranged time.
Items required: Single Bed, Mattress, Bedding, Cutlery, Crockery, Chair, Table, Sofa, Kettle and generally the most basic necessities.
If you are able to assist with any items please contact Kim Bailey on 01285 623000 alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org
