One Roof Leicester is a charity which provided accommodation, support and advice to people who are homeless, destitute refugees and refused asylum seekers. We want to give the people we support a home and feel part of the community they live in. Our projects are designed to encourage local communities and faith groups to be actively involved in helping individuals to find routes out of homelessness.
Our projects include:
One Roof Homes — a place individuals can call home and are supported by local communities.
Winter Night Shelter— local faith groups and volunteers work together to offer 10 bed spaces every night for rough sleepers. The night shelter rotates around seven places of worship with volunteers offering food and companionship.
ORL website and service directory— providing information and advice to help people access the help and support they need.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
