Upcoming Caring Saturday’s event at London, Borough of Greenwich April 25th 2020
Frugal Foundation Launched her first Caring Saturday’s event in the UK on the 21 December 2019 to aid to homeless people at Royal Greenwich.
building on our community work in Greenwich, our project is running a series of Caring Saturday’s events to enable communities to come together and engage with and support local homeless/vulnerable people.
The latter will be offered a change of clothes and haircut, and all will have the opportunity to share their stories, and with them, we will consider we could offer them support including help with job hunting; considering training and/or volunteering options; identifying their existing skills, strengths and abilities, and how this could share to benefit the community (e.g. Storytelling, Art, Catering, Gardening, DIY).
Relevant government agencies, Charities, and community groups will be invited to the event to explain their services and explore with the vulnerable groups how they can best be supported. In Greenwich, Households placed in temporary accommodation has risen by 172% in the past four year which is really our major concern.
Expected Project outcomes
our expected outcome of this project are
A) opportunity for the vulnerable people to open up about their problems and concerns in an informal friendly environment
B) Community members deciding to volunteer to support these groups
C) All community members feeling empowered , with increase wellbeing and motivation to increase their prospects.
Our budget includes entertainers, refreshment, clothing , hairdressing and haircut, and volunteer and event expenses. this project among others, will teach us how we can achieve these outcomes, and motivate greater community engagement, interest our plans here in the UK. so we can also include the cost of hiring a professional to draw on our experience and develop a business plan to chat our way forward for the coming months and years.
we as usual, will promote involvement via service providers, community members, local/social media, publicity materials, website, presentation at meetings, incentivising homeless/vulnerable people to participate with the offer of a plate of food, haircut and a change of clothes, referring to specialist support where the need is identified
We think this project will meet your First Priority as we will be promoting participation in the events to all sections of the community in Greenwich, including those who are homeless/vulnerable. we will identify in different voluntary roles. for example; Helping to organised the events, championing the events, consulting homeless/vulnerable people, catering, waiting, running training, sessions, mentoring.
Through working together as a team – which will grow with event – community members from all backgrounds will bond where previously they would have thought they have nothing in common.
Also, your third priority applies in volunteering in our Caring Saturday’s team many people will discover new abilities and interest and gain renewed self-confident and motivation to become more engaged in their community, and in some case brush up some skills or develop new skills. With homeless people, this could lead to the first step towards wellbeing, housing, employment and improve prospects
This project is open to everyone and isn’t aimed at a specific group of people

We have organised this event here before, the crisis at this IDP Camp (Daudu) has grown to a grovelling state. There are up to 8500 people living in this IDP camp and we received a call from the camp leader that more IDPs are still expected to join them by the end of March 2019. Similar situation at Plateau State which is why we are holding the events (Caring Saturday’s) again at these locations , to target up to 8500 and 5000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDP)
there is no adequate food to be fed on here, no medical facilities, no schools for up to 4200 children who are innocently affected by these crisis living in this camp.
Though, we have been of help to them with the little we can support with and with the help of our donors both home and abroad by providing them with foods, clothes, shoes and other materials. We have Organized a team of Volunteers to support these children educationally. Every Saturday, our (FEF) Volunteers offers them studies there at the camp and we are also working in partnership other local schools accommodate these children in their schools. The task is huge as we cannot do it alone which is why we need your help of any amount ($,£,€,¥,#) to save lives in the crisis area especially the little children.
