The Bridge Homelessness to Hope charity is based in Leicester and provides food, physical and mental health, and well-being services to support the city’s homeless community.

Gemma Streather, Director of Oakwood Training said: “We feel that we have very similar values to The Bridge Homelessness to Hope and want to help them to achieve their vision. We chose them as our charity of the year because we feel that we’ll be able to add real value by helping them to look after the wellbeing of their staff and volunteers, who all do such an amazing job in supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community.”
