What we do:
Provide hygiene, or 'wellbeing', packs for everyone who becomes homeless
Toy packs for each homeless child
Christmas gift scheme for needy children
Food for Christmas dinners for homeless hostel residents
'Community Friends', our befriending project to support those experiencing homelessness, and those at risk of homelessness includes a thrice weekly drop-in on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon.
Those attending the drop-in have said:
‘You have no idea what it means to come somewhere where people are friendly’
‘Home from Home’, our new project aimed at families who are living in deprivation or isolation. Volunteers and families share a meal together and enjoy company, fun and games together.
