Without ID it is very hard to get housed and lack of ID can cause many obstacles. We spend many hours cutting through red tape to obtain ID for our service users, especially those that are homeless. We are still able to obtain birth certificates although they are taking longer to arrive. Foreign ID (passports) are impossible to get now the embassies and consulates have closed due to COVID-19. When they are open it is very time consuming and expensive to get passports as it involves two of our volunteers accompanying the service user to London or Manchester depending on the nationality.

This is our food parcel delivery service to those that are in need of food in these tough times.
Orders that are taken through our Facebook Messenger are loaded onto our ticket system where our trained deliverers will pick up the order and deliver it. Those without Messenger can request parcels by texting 07831637678. Please state the number of adults and children in the household and if ladies sanitary is needed.
Our food is quarantined at our food bank and is then made into parcels with gloved hands and delivered safely by our trained delivery drivers.

We have continued to be busy. There have been call outs to homeless people in Burton and in Swadlincote. Under Government guidelines, homeless people must be given temporary accommodation at this time. There has been euphoria on social media about this but it is only temporary, emergency accommodation. We must use this as a stepping stone to get our homeless people housed permanently.
Our Market Place outreach sessions continue to be well attended.
We took delivery of more PPE equipment this week to keep our volunteers and service users safe. We will continue with the high standards we have adopted and will continue improving them through this COVID-19 pandemic. ... See MoreSee Less
