Thank you snow much

“Snow is an inconvenience for the majority of us as it stops us from doing what we would usually do, but for people who are vulnerable and homeless it can be deadly”, says Emma, our Engagement Service Manager. “Last week’s storm could have been catastrophic for our homeless service users, but with some inspiring acts from amazing people kept the community safe and warm.”

“With the help of our dedicated staff, we managed to keep the doors of our Health & Harm Reduction Centre open to enable people to access a warm space, a hot drink and our needle exchange services. We also worked with St. Mungo‚Äôs at The Compass Centre last Friday to ensure they were able to open their doors to the homeless community.”

Some highlights of amazing acts include:

“It is heart warming to see how much people care for our most vulnerable service users, so this is a thank you to everyone that helped, donated or went above and beyond.”
