what we do

WHAT WE DO

We are a grassroots organisation founded in October 2019.  Our Volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring a valuable range of skills and attributes to the organisation. All our volunteers are committed to supporting the needs of homeless, vulnerable people and families. Our volunteers donate many hours of their time to volunteering. 

We believe that both personal and paid work experience can be used to support service users.   

We understand homelessness can happen to anyone. However with support, empathy and direction, individuals and families are able to turn their lives around. 

Our Helpline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Your call will be taken by one of our experienced Volunteer Support Workers. Whether you are calling for yourself, or on behalf of a friend, we will offer you a sympathetic ear and take time to LISTEN and offer advice. We are also able to direct you to other useful services if you have specific requirements which we are unable to assist with directly and immediately.
