Leslie's Care Packages was founded in 2016 by Vi Wood, 

following her own experiences when she and her Family was in danger of losing their own home. The Voluntary Group has been set up in loving tribute to her late husband Leslie, helping homeless and vulnerable people across the Black Country, West Midlands.


Homelessness is not a choice, and can happen to anyone at any time. Homeless are from all walks of life, from failed marriages, loss of jobs, loss of family members, people being abused, and with mental health issues. 


Homelessness isn't just suffered by rough sleepers.

The "hidden homeless" are those living in unsuitable, temporary or crowded accommodation. Homelessness is devastating, leaving people vulnerable, low self-esteem and isolated and everyone deserves a place to call home.
