Last week was another totally busy week. We searched for two missing 15 year old girls who are now found and safe. Their care home sent us a lovely thank you message. We are just pleased they are off the streets and safe.
Another 4 birth certificates were ordered to use as ID to help our residents without homes get housed and back to work.
A new organisation was born this week called "Burton and East Staffordshire Homeless Partnership". The second meeting was held to agree the name of the organisation and to put some governance in place. East Staffs Housing Manager and a representative from Homelesslink are helping set things up and local organisations are invited to get involved. A list of local services will be produced to prevent duplication and it is hoped the collaboration between local organisations will ensure good local services for the future. Only the YMCA and Burton HOPE were present at the recent meeting but more local groups will join as things progress.
We are still desperately short of the following food items.
Tinned meat (luncheon meat, corned beef etc.).
Tinned meals (spag bol, macaroni cheeses, casseroles etc.)
Snacks (crisps, biscuit bars, biscuits. sweets, chocolate etc.).
Coffee, instant hot choc, sugar, UHT milk.
Please message the page with any donations.

Peter Coker, Rucksack Pete's, family came over today to take his ashes to the arch he used. They are going to take him to his mum's grave in Bedfordshire next. It is a very fitting end for a man who travelled around as Pete had. ... See MoreSee Less

Another amazing week in many ways but with a few disappointments thrown in too.
Last night we managed to get another young man off the street. We also have got help for two ladies that were in danger of eviction but now are not! We are battling with the system, trying to get passports from the Hungarian and Romanian Embassies. A troubled young man that we helped get accommodation away from Burton is doing exceptionally well and he will be missed by all of our volunteers.
Support plans to move towards housing have been drawn up.
Our lovely volunteers served food, coffee hot chocolate in plentiful quantities, food/clothes parcels were given out, including sleeping bags and tents.
Our Outreach teams walked many miles to offer help!
Just another week at Burton HOPE 🙂
Thank you to our loyal volunteers and donors for making it possible. ... See MoreSee Less
