THE charity Hope for Southall Street Homeless has received a donation of £21,000 from Berkeley West Thames.

It takes the amount raised by the housebuilder for the charity to £120,000 in a three-year partnership.

Susan Cawley, of HSSH, said: “Our vision as a charity has always been, and continues to be, to enable people to take ways out of rough sleeping, which results in them leading fulfilled lives. 

“We have achieved this over the last three years with the help of the team at Berkeley. 

“Their support was especially beneficial during the pandemic, which has been a difficult time for everyone, but particularly for those who are homeless and live on our streets,”

Established in December 2015, the charity aims to support people sleeping rough, including helping them into permanent accommodation. 

Money raised by Berkeley and its employees has helped to fund this important outreach work as well as paying for a full-time, complex needs case worker. 

As a Punjabi and English speaker, the case worker provides daily welfare support.

Berkeley is the housebuilder behind The Green Quarter, a 3,750-home development off Randolph Road, Southall. 

Over the course of the partnership, money has been raised through donations, on-site initiatives and fund-raising events.

In April, The Green Quarter team travelled more than 10 million steps in 10 days to raise £10,000.
