Our service users are people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Cambridge, many of whom are dealing with addiction, mental health problems, history of offending and chaotic lifestyles. Our project is looking to offer warmth, compassion and support to a marginalised and often forgotten group of people.

Solution
