A task group has put together a draft Handbook for running a Winter Night Shelter for rough sleepers next winter. However, funds are needed to pay for alternations to the upstairs area at St. Andrew's Church and to pay for a co-ordinator and without funding the plans 'stay on the table'. Please get in touch via the Contact Us tab on the Menu Bar if you would like to get involved.
Our application to become a partner of Green Pastures has been accepted. They are a national Christian organisation providing homes for those most in need. We are now putting a team of people in place to take ongoing responsibility for the Supported Housing Project (property yet to be acquired) and for the welfare of the occupants. If you have money to invest, Green Pastures give a good rate of return. The more that local people invest, the bigger the benefit to this Opendoors project.
