Situation

There are few places where homeless and vulnerably housed people can go to feel safe, and to get their most basic needs fulfilled. It's difficult for these members of our society to achieve what they need to without practical help.

We offer internet access, we give phones to rough sleepers who need to be contacted by the council, we give out food bags and offer a free hot lunch and a cooked breakfast twice a week. We advocate on behalf of people who can't do it for themselves and provide one to one support with benefit applications. We refer to physical and mental health providers and much more
