Help the Friary to help the homeless this winter.
As the nights get colder, the cost of living is increasing. Energy bills and fuel costs are spiralling causing income to be stretched.
Many are reliant on this income, often for issues around physical and mental health.
The Friary has recognised the need to focus on preventative work and as such, we have now launched our Advice Centre to complement the work in our Drop-In Centre.
We are working to support people with issues around benefits, housing and debt. This is already starting to make a difference and those who could have ended up on the streets are being supported.
The Friary is here to provide both practical and emotional support and it is the emphasis on both that makes the real difference.
To many people we see, without the time invested with them, they feel there are few other places to turn.
The pandemic has brought extra support for rough sleepers with increased accommodation
provision this winter. This is so welcomed for those entrenched rough sleepers.
It will give them space and support to consider the future. It can’t help everyone though and the Friary is here to help those who will still be in need.
Help the Friary to remain the support network that we are to so many people this winter.
