Alternative Giving points at City Campus

The University of Wolverhampton is supporting a city-wide initiative to fundraise for the homeless - The Alternative Giving Campaign Wolverhampton. 

Collection points for monetary donations to the homeless are in the entrance points of Wulfruna Building, Millennium City Building and Lord Swraj Paul Building, City Campus.

The Alternative Giving Campaign is funded, delivered and managed by Wolverhampton BID Company Limited. One hundred percent of the monies collected go to three Wolverhampton named charities  - P3 Navigator, St Georges Hub and the Street Pastors.

The Alternative Giving Campaign states: "We are committed to helping people to get off the street and receive the right support or accommodation they need. We do this by working with local charity support agencies, the Police and Wolverhampton City Council.

"The reasons why people beg on the street can be complicated and only addressed with the right agency support. Giving money to them may make life on the street easier for them in the short term, but, in the worst case, could feed a dependency. It takes more than money to turn a life around."
