On Sunday 24th June local Milford on Sea resident, sue Forward will be cycling a 50 mile trip starting at Ringwood on behalf of New Forest Nightstop.
New Forest Nightstop provides emergency accommodation for homeless people aged 16+ in the homes of trained and approved host households around the New Forest. New Forest Nightstop was established in 2003 and is a team approach to homelessness. It is a voluntary service managed by Community First New Forest based at Ringwood and is affiliated to the national registered charity, Nightstop UK (https://www.nightstop.org.uk/)
The primary aim of Nightstop is to enable homeless people to access safe, free, emergency accommodation in the host families at the beginning of a person’s homelessness, when need is most acute. Having worked with the homeless in Bournemouth and East Dorset Sue knows how important this support is, in order to improve people’s self-esteem and their life skills to work towards a more secure future. No person wakes up one morning and says “I know, I think I will be homeless today”. There is always a story to tell.
If you would like to support her on the 24th June she would really love that. You can support Sue by clicking here.
