Doors Re-open for Drop-in Sessions
As the council’s Covid-19 emergency accommodation provision wound down and more rough sleepers started taking to the streets again, our drop-in sessions at the Skinner Street United Reformed Church re-opened on 1stJuly after more than three months of closure due to the pandemic.
The drop-ins are vital in providing our clients with regular nourishment and outreach from our experienced team of volunteers. In July we welcomed back a total of 45 clients and served 133 takeaway lunches.
The sessions run every weekday between 1.30 and 2.30. Due to government guidelines, we are currently only able to serve take-away lunches through a hatch in the main hall. Showers and toilets remain closed and we will keep you updated as this changes.
We would like to say a huge thank you to our local Asda and their Community Champion Rona for donating some much-needed suntan lotion, food and water for our rough sleeping clients.
