Together, we celebrate the lives of the thousands of people who have rebuilt their lives with our support and the difference we have made to those who are homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities.
This June, Alabaré marked 30 years since the opening of our first home in Salisbury, founded to provide a safe home and support to disadvantaged and vulnerable people who were living in crisis. As well as homeless people, we now support young parents and babies, Armed Forces veterans, those struggling with their mental well-being, care leavers and those with learning disabilities.
“30 years on, the work of Alabaré has touched the lives of thousands of people not only in Salisbury but across the South, South West and Wales. With the dedicated support of an incredible staff and many selfless volunteers, we are helping over 1500 people every year,” says the Rev John Proctor, founder.
While this milestone birthday is a time of celebration, it is also a time for reflection. The sad reality is that homelessness is as much a problem now as it ever was. We all see the increasing pressure on families and individuals struggling with the cost-of-living crisis, with the tragic inevitability that some will be tipped into the crisis of homelessness. Equally, the devastating events in Ukraine and beyond mean it’s vital we can offer a safe sanctuary and new start to those young people seeking asylum from war and persecution and who are scared and alone in our community.
