The wonderful Cheryl Rice from the equally wonderful SCVYS (Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services) came over to train some of our volunteers to be DBS verifiers.
Anne, Dan, Binita, Rachael and Richard were trained tonight. They will go on to train other HOPE volunteers.
We are constantly trying to improve our organisation. Training our volunteers plays a big part in it. ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday Irena and Bel took a homeless Lithuanian gent to his Embassy so he could fill out passport forms. This is the last part of a very long process, dealing with the Embassy by email and telephone. Many computer hours are put in by John and IT Coordinator, Lee. Special envelopes have to be purchased. Trains and other transport booked. Passport photos arranged. All went smoothly and all three are now home safe. We await delivery of the passport in a month or so! Without this our homeless man cannot work or have a home!
Without ID you do not exist. We order copies of birth certificates for those born in the UK but we have many homeless EU citizens who have had ID stolen or could not afford to renew it. We spend many hours dealing with ID docs. This is very expensive and we receive no official funding! Approximate cost of yesterday inc travel is £550. Thankfully no-one is paid at Burton HOPE so all resources can go to our cause. ... See MoreSee Less

Many thanks to The Shah family, Binita, Mital and Neev and their friends, Susan and Charlene for organising it. You are all very lovely people.
Over 20 food parcels made and given.
One birth certificate delivered, another ordered, a housing referral sent and preparations made to take a Lithuanian gent to his Embassy to get a passport.
All in all another successful HOPE evening. ... See MoreSee Less
