Homeless outreach and support
During Covid-19 Lockdown
In order for us to continue our important work , we have had to make changes to our processes in order to provide a basic level of support to those in need whilst adhering to our updated COVID-19 H&S guidelines.
These changes had to cut our twice weekly social gatherings to a parcel pickup service due to social distancing guidelines. This is to protect volunteers and our service users.
Support work still continues but adhering to social distancing guidelines.
The government is allowing us to continue with our work based on current legislation and our process changes.
