Public opinion shows that there is a negative stigma attached to homelessness. The Nomad Trust aims to raise awareness of the severity of this problem.
In Lincoln, The Nomad Trust works towards helping homeless people from all walks of life to regain their independence and self-respect. When a person is at their lowest ebb, the charity is there to offer shelter, food, warmth and companionship together with guidance and support. Working with some of the most vulnerable people in society, The Nomad Trust is providing more than just a roof over people’s heads.
