St. Anne’s is one of the few homeless hostels that are dog friendly. The charity is now starting an ambitious project to provide long-term homes for formerly homeless people and their canine companions.
A work experience placement with the Royal National institute for the Blind led to Anni Rhodes-Steere launching a theatre company for disabled children and young people. 15 years on, Head2Head reaches thousands of people across the South of England.
“There’s a revolving door of homelessness. People move into temporary accommodation, get kicked out because of their behaviour or addictions and end up back on the streets. We want to offer people long-term stability and support.”
It can be difficult to access support if your child has additional needs. Ruby’s Fund provides that support, and gives children the opportunity to play and learn, and family members the chance to socialise with their peers.
Your eligible deposits with Charity Bank are currently protected up to a maximum of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), the UK's deposit guarantee scheme. Total balances above £85,000 are not protected.
For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000).
Deposits from large companies and small local authorities are covered by the FSCS deposit protection from 30 January 2017 up to a maximum of £85,000.
