£300, 000 granted to UK Catholic Charity to assist the Homeless

The  Big Lottery Fund  has given £300, 000 to the Catholic charity community “Caritas Anchor House” for the purpose of assisting homeless people in the UK, restoring jobs for them and attaching them to good jobs they can earn a good living from. The Big Lottery Fund’s donation will cover the charity’s Education, Training and Employment Programme for over 200 homeless people.

Keith Fernett, the Chief Executive of the Caritas Anchor House admitted with joy that the donation will go a long way to comfort a lot of homeless people in the London Borough of Newham.

The Caritas Anchor House in 2014 helped 27 per cent of its residents find a job, which is nearly double the average of 14 per cent for most homeless and charity organisations. This made them a best choice for Big Lottery Fund to reach out to the homeless.

“We are delighted that our transformative work in Newham has been recognised by The Big Lottery Fund. With the second highest levels of unemployment in London, our services are becoming ever more vital and this funding will allow us to extend our services in the community.” Keith Fernett said.

The Big Lottery Fund’s Grant-making Director Lyn Cole, said:

“I’m really pleased to see that projects such as Caritas Anchor House will be bringing festive joy to people who are in need. This new funding will help homeless people in East London to gain education and employment. At the heart of the organisations receiving funding today is their ability to support communities, deliver positive changes and help so many people make a real difference to their lives.”

Yearly, the Big Lottery Fund gives out 40% of their earnings to communities for a public support and other good causes. Their generosity so far over the years have amounted to £670 million.
