Supermarket Gift Voucher
This Christmas is likely to be tough for us all in Greater Manchester, with people isolated from their loved ones and the ongoing uncertainty about health, livelihoods and the future. For the homeless people and the low income families we support at The Bond Board, life was tough before Covid 19 and many have now been stretched to breaking point.
Could you help make life a little easier for homeless people and those in crisis this Christmas? A gift voucher for food can have a huge impact for those who are homeless and in hardship. It will help to make sure people don’t go hungry and just knowing that someone out there cares can make all the difference. If you can help, please donate now. Thank you!

More About The Bond Board
REDUCING SOCIAL ISOLATION
Social isolation and loneliness are major themes to emerge from The BOnd Board's ‘Sustainable Livelihoods’ research project with service users. Whilst Covid 19 restrictions make some activities difficult to arrange, they are committed to delivering on the feedback from our service users and finding creative and innovative solutions to enable people to feel more connected and less alone. Bond Board are therefore actively seeking opportunities to support homeless and vulnerable people to build their resilience and reduce social isolation.
The sudden increase in pressure caused by Covid 19, is pushing many to breaking point. There is an increase in demand from existing service users as well as those who are new to the system with issues such as redundancy, debt, relationship breakdown and rent arrears. The Bond Board want to provide early, specialist homeless prevention support to both tenants and landlords to ensure as many people as possible avoid the trauma of homelessness.
INCREASING ACCESS TO THE PRIVATE RENTED SECTOR
With changes to the welfare system and demand outstripping supply, many private Landlords have been put off renting to homeless people on benefits. The Bond Board has successfully developed positive relationships with a large range of Landlords and Letting Agents across Greater Manchester, however, with additional resources we could do more. They are seeking opportunities to provide support, change perceptions and break down the barriers that exist amongst Landlords and Letting agents so that more homeless people on low incomes can find a new place to call home
