|What we do||One Roof Leicester began in 2012 as a networking organisation. In 2015, we launched our first project, ORL homes - temporary shared housing for people who have been homeless and are ready for independent living while we support them through move on to more permanent accommodation - and in 2016 we opened the Winter Night Shelter, the UK's first multifaith night shelter, to provide respite accommodation for ten individuals through the winter months. This was made possible by volunteers from the local community. In 2019 we received a Big Lottery grant to open a year round static night shelter to supplement the existing Winter Night Shelter. Due to Covid and the guidance around social distancing, we had to close the One Roof Shelter in March. As the night shelter closed, we decided to further develop ORL Homes; as of November 2020 we are up to eight properties from four, offering accommodation to up to 28 people in shared homes. We are continuing to offer support to those night shelter guests who moved into LCC accommodation when the night shelter closed, and deliver weekly food parcels to those guests and residents who have no recourse to public funds, in addition to other vulnerable people.|
