Another VERY busy weekend. Great teamwork gets us through. On top of the love we hand out in bucketfuls, we also give out hot drinks, cold drinks, food, clothing, sleeping bags, tents, toiletries, ladies sanitary and food parcels.
We also try to find solutions........
Our team submitted a consented letter of vulnerability to Tamworth District Council's Housing Solutions for a Polish chap that travelled to Burton to see us for help. Three consented letters to prove vulnerability to our East Staffs Borough Council. Two are homeless and desperate, one is an ex serviceman in danger of becoming homeless. We use Help A Squaddie, who ordered him an on line shop and will visit him for further assistance, we have also put in a letter of support for assn housing.
On top of that, two referrals for 1:1 mental health counselling were made.
All with love from our wonderful Burton HOPE volunteers. ... See MoreSee Less

Some very busy outreach sessions. The weather is getting kinder and it is light later which puts everyone in a good mood.
We have had correspondence from the Charity Commision over our application but it seems we have to wait a bit longer for our charity status............
"Your application for registration for BURTON HOPE is still waiting to be dealt with following our initial assessment. We are currently dealing with very high demand for our registration service.
All applications requiring more information or clarification are considered individually and in date order. This is leading to extended waiting times for some of our customers and we apologise for the delays.
As a guideline, our team are working on applications such as yours which were initially assessed in January 2019.
Your application will be passed to a member of our specialist registration team as soon as possible." ... See MoreSee Less
