Acton Homeless Boosted By Ward Donation

Christmas 'gift'  to Acton Homeless Concern

A local ward forum meeting has agreed to help Acton Homeless Concern by donating £2,500.

Acton Homeless Concern is a drop-in day centre and provides a range of services such as lunches, clothes, showers, advice on benefits and housing, GP, chiropody, optician, dentist and an alcohol and drug counselling. It's a voluntary organisation dependent on donations.

The charity was set up in 1989 and now around 150 - 200 people attend both Emmaus House and Damien Centres.

At the Southfield Ward Meeting on 14th December those in attendance listened to a speaker from the charity and agreed to help.

The three Lib Dem Councillors agreed to fund the centre - which is the chosen charity of the Mayor of Ealing - with £2,500

Councillor Andrew Steed said: “Although the ward budgets are relatively small Acton Homeless Concern is a great charity helping a large number of vulnerable people each year. Liberal Democrats say the money will be used to help give dignity to many as well as giving opportunities to those who are homeless and looking for work.“
