    Night Shelters Project - Strategy Plan 1b Night Shelters Project - Strategy Plan 1b Presentation Transcript

    • [Night Shelters] Project @ GOCo Strategy Plan 2007 - 10 [Striving to Create Provisions for Tomorrow’s Homeless/Rough Sleepers]
    • Introduction to [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo
      • [Night Shelter] Project @ COCo , is a not-for-profit scheme and was established in 2004.
      • We exists to collating & disseminating pertinent information, resources, & contacts, meeting a significant gap between disenfranchised homeless/ rough sleepers who are on the street and not yet engaged with appropriate agencies/bodies to meet their needs.
      • To provide assistance on nightshelters and support services plus promote best practices within organisations & to enable / empower small groups / organisations to become more effective and efficient in service delivery to the Homeless/Rough Sleepers in East London and the London borders of Essex; plus associated agencies/bodies.
      • All you ever wanted to know homelessness/rough sleepers; nightshelters; & associated issues but did not know where to ask or find!
      • OnLine Homelessness/Rough Sleepers Support | Advice | Help | Collate & Disseminate Information/Resources.
      What we do? NOTE : All images, logos, and thimball versions of documents are hyper-linked in this PowerPoint presentation version and will automatically connect to relevant web sites, and full versions of documents (in Acrobat .pdf format).
    • Our websites at the two links below and OnLine Directory Links at http://messrs-g-owen-co.websites.uk-plc.net.master.com/texis/master/search /++wwBmke_863wwwwqwwwwwwwtFml/homepage.html?d=1&cat=439f7b312&i= are not exhaustive and will inevitably change. However, these will at least be able to direct/re-direct Service Users and Agencies/Bodies to other contacts known through historical networks. We nonetheless update the links periodically as more information or amendments become available. We, however welcome information that would help us update to help those in need. Please Feedback to us at: http://htmlgear.tripod.com/feed/control.feed?a=render&i=1&u=gowenandco Nightshelter Links 1 @ GOCo
    • Avoiding sending any homeless person indiscriminately to any Night Shelter before first making contact with the shelter is promoted. It is appreciated that this is often frustrating and sometimes difficult. However, sending a exhausted homeless person, (perhaps from one side of London to another in hope), only for them to arrive to be told that it is not open, or they are full, potentially has far more ramifications and psychological damage to a person already suffering. We therefore strong discourage such action and promote engaging with nightshelters in the first instance before sending homeless/rough sleepers to any venue's. We also have a designated web page entitled: メ R ough Sleepers | Homelessness | Night Shelters - External Contacts at http://clix.to/nightshelters and http://nightshelters.clix.to.master.com/texis/master/search/? q= & s=SS which focuses and helps in this regard. Nightshelter Links 2 @ GOCo
    • In order to engage with people, (especially rough sleepers), who may have visual impairment, (and to strive to comply with DDA), we are beginning to produce our resource and contact material in other formats, including audio. This include using audio/visual animation message son our web pages through SitePal - http://vhost.oddcast.com/vhssplayer.php?acc=22469&ss=338734&sl=0&l=0&h=300&w=400&bc=000000&mid=31337&t=1: Nightshelter • SitePal
    • To further provide an enhanced service and to enable service users to engage, we have also provided a ‘live’ online service whereby contact can be made to us whilst at our web site to ask questions and make enquiries. This is reinforced by questionnaires to help us provide the most effective support needed specific to the needs of an individual, even when not online. This can be viewed at: https://server.iad.liveperson.net/hc/88744609/?cmd=file&file=visitorWantsToChat&site=88744609&byhref=1&imageUrl=http://uk.geocities.com/gowenandco10/NS.gif&sessionkey=H2669723485628646326K25098762 Nightshelter • LivePerson
    • To further provide an enhanced service and to enable service users to engage, We have also provided a further secondary ‘live’ online service whereby contact can also be made to us whilst at our web site to ask questions and make enquiries. This can be viewed at: http://www.sitechatter.com Nightshelter • SiteChatter
    • With the many years (over a decade) with which I have been involved and led in roles to create provisions for homeless/rough sleepers, I inevitably still continue to receive regularly enquiries for provisions that exist, including nightshelters, and support services. Without this support, homeless will certainly suffer, especially during the winter months. Such has been the demand that I have created a location in the web with such facilities at: http://wakeup.to/goconightsheltersmb and http://clix.to/nightshelters Concept into Reality • 1
    • Added to this is also provided periodic updates of provisions of nightshelters lists both for those who engage with the homeless and which can be handed directly to those who make enquiries of churches & other venues – the latest of which can be viewed at: http://wakeup.to/goconightsheltersmb Concept into Reality • 2
    • So successful has this been with a real demand over the past year or so, (with hundreds of sources visiting regularly), and benefiting homeless people direct, that this is to be a permanent feature having been asked to continue by such sources as the Resource Information Centre, The Big Issue, Crisis, Shelter, Simon Community, amongst many others who, as you will see from the site are more than supportive and contributing towards the cost of making sure that this positive and direct benefit continues as there is nothing else of its kind that exists at this time. It also supports the ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign as you will see. Homeless people otherwise find themselves arriving at churches and other venues only to be turned away because full, or no longer nightshelters existing, with sources not knowing where to positively redirect them so as to ensure that they have a reasonably good chance of finding shelter, food, and support. Concept into Reality • 3
    • The provision we have created alleviates this issue significantly – even in recent times, enquiries from homeless people themselves direct, to referral agencies, public libraries and other venues, and local MP’s surgeries are received, with some homeless having arrived desperate for help, and the list enabled the office to find them a location. It is done on a not-for-profit basis and the benefits are solely designed to help homeless/rough sleepers. Concept into Reality • 4
    • No small part of the reason why this provision does not exist a great deal is the lack of funding. I am able to subsidise to some extent by adverts but this only goes part of the way. Contribution made on to the work of this project is invaluable and used to towards this real and tangible work - benefiting homeless people/rough sleepers. Concept into Reality • 5
    • Kind contributions are not only be deeply appreciated but go towards a very good and worthwhile cause benefiting homeless/rough sleepers. In recognition, publicity has been provided to funders and stakeholders on several of the web pages widely viewed by thousands of people each year; plus an acknowledgement on the Message Board; and, given the long association and kind support, an advertisement broadcasting funders and contributors and their services which is added for an entire year at no added cost. Concept into Reality • 6
    • A annual report accounting for both the contributions and resources received and how expended to the benefit of homeless / rough sleepers is provided annually quantify the grant / contribution to stakeholders and made available on our web site, as part of our transparency policy. Concept • 7
    • Best Practice
          • The success of the marketing strategy will, to a large degree, depend on the [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo as a whole sharing and implementing ‘best practice’ through ‘evidence base kite-bench marking’ processes.

    • At the time of going to press, we acknowledge the additional kind generosity of the following donors who have made grants/donations: - The Big Issue St Botolph Without Bishopsgate Wanstead Perative Meeting Fundraising • 1
    • Sponsorship @ [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo • 1
      • We need help to keep the web site(s) at [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo moving forward!
      • It takes a lot of time, commitment and money to continue to update this site alone with over 191+ web pages needed material FREE for the asking! This excludes the work of material to download. Service Users can help in three simple and easy ways.
      • Firstly, becoming an annual sponsor of our web site with a contribution of only £25.00 – payable before downloading ANY material. To fail to make payment deprives future development for homeless/rough sleepers and penalises other service users – it is imperative that Service Users of our web site(s) help us to help to enable us to help the wider voluntary sector!
    • Sponsorship @ [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo • 2
      • Secondly, in addition, or alternatively, Service Users can sponsor a web page, (dedicated to their concern, with logo/image, promoting services or products – linked to a host of search engines and therefore locatable not just by people who specifically visit this site, but by users of the Internet as a whole.
      • Thirdly, by spreading the word about our web site(s), to every Organisation/Group staff person they have ever talked to as well as to other homeless/rough sleepers that need help!
    • Sponsorship @ [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo • 3
      • In recognition of the direct kind support and to reciprocate the same, acknowledgement of this will be accorded in our extensive publicity material and in Press Releases, plus Web site(s), (of which we have no less than eight), and web pages, (of which there are over 191+ on this site alone), which would provide a excellent high profile and good customer relations for sponsor(s) alone. Added to this will undoubtedly be the excellent publicity/public relations this would create for sponsor(s), coupled with the interest it would continue to create on the part of other sources/companies involved, which, in the past has precipitated business for companies who have supported us and would potentially continue to be of value in terms of future business.
    • Sponsorship @ [Night Shelter] Project @ GOCo • 4
      • It cannot be stressed enough that the kind contribution would not only be deeply appreciated but will go towards a very good and worthwhile cause - once again, PLEASE...PLEASE SUPPORT!! Just the help with the provision of the some or all of the sponsorship would make a significant difference and valued contribution long remembered - making this small contribution a longer term investment rather than an expense.
      • We can but once more only hope that prospective sponsor(s) will feel able to help in some way in relation to the above in support of this invaluable work, (targeted at new, small, and emerging voluntary/charitable organisations/groups), if only as a goodwill/customer relations exercise. The added benefit to sponsor(s) of this work with the aid of the resources sought would provide advertising for prospective sponsor(s) as well, which would positively promote their business/body.

    • Outside of Grants and Contributions, (although not occurred so far), any donations received would not be used for this project per say but would be pass onto known voluntary agencies dealing directly with homeless people and treated in a sense, restricted in that these monies will only be used for the direct benefit of the homeless/rough sleepers, in contrast to the resourcing of this Project overall.
