Poole Council granted gold status for housing to our three tenants, which is the highest priority rating. Following this, the original three tenants have now moved out into independent accommodation in August, September and December 2018. Their replacements, rough sleepers, have moved in and one has been able to take on full time employment. We are grateful to Poole Council Housing team for all their support and look forward to continued progress with getting further rough sleepers into Amos House and then on to their own homes.
Gabi of Routes to Roots is celebrating after receiving £3,000 to provide supplies and help feed Poole’s rough sleepers. The donation was proudly awarded by Spectrum Housing Group’s Three Counties Community Forum who recognise charities and local organisations who work within the local community. The application was made to support Routes to Roots’ work with The Fisherman’s Café in Poole Quay, helping to ensure rough sleepers start their day with a hot meal.
Pat Adams, Chair of the Three Counties Community Forum, said; “The Forum receive many applications throughout the year but this particular one caught our attention as Routes to Roots does such worthwhile work within our community. The thought that there are still rough sleepers, cold and hungry, on our streets in Poole is heart-breaking and Spectrum were certainly quick to try and help Routes to Roots where we can.”
