Please help us to give Hope and Compassion to those who need it.
LCP 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, vulnerable and anyone in need across the Black Country and the surropunding areas.
Vi is very passionate, and #dedicates all her time to help others. Vi also works alongside - and supports other organisations and registered charities.
LCP is a Non Funded, Not-For-Profit, Voluntary Group, raising awareness of homelessness and poverty as well as giving Hope, hands-on practical and emotional support. Providing much needed provisions
such as Food and Toiletries.
LCP relies solely on the kindness and generosity of the general public, and #businesses for donations, such as Food, Toiletries, Sleeping Bags, Underwear, Socks, Rucksacks, and any other essentials.
These are all vital to the continuing success of LCP Leslie's Care Packages.
All donations are taken direct to where they are needed.
"Help that is given by Leslie's Care Packages is direct and fast and so
valuable. No middle man, no delays, no forms to fill out, no waiting lists.
"Such a great person doing this in memory of her dearly departed husband, you are an inspiration to us all.
"Vi Wood and the work she does for the homeless is indispensable. She's truly taken the time to help the homeless without so much as a second thought for herself. This is a great cause, run by a
lovely woman with a big heart.
"Fantastic charity run by a truly selfless woman who does her upmost to help the homeless. Vi is always friendly and welcoming, she has a true passion for helping people.
"this lady has recently helped someone very close to me who was desperate for everything after being rehomed after a very difficult time they was overwhelmed by her kindness and concern and said
they didn't realise such people existed.
Together we can make a Difference:
We are all only one life event away from homelessness. We all know our health is our top priority- but after that is our housing. Because without adequate housing - our health suffers.
The Homeless are of all ages, and 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.
Nobody should have to endure homelessness. Much change is needed to ensure that decent, safe housing is available for all. In reality, anyone could find themselves without a home.
Leslie's Care Packages are always in need of Volunteers. We have lots to do, but especially needed are delivery/pick-up drivers, people to support events and anyone who can help store
