This last couple of weeks has had lots of activity including 7 volunteer staff from Juniper Training painting our drop-in area. A handyman gave up a days work to oversee things and a volunteer from the café also helped.
Community visiting is going really well, we have lots of wonderful stories from the volunteers visiting clients in their homes. We have also dealt with people who have incredibly difficult situations ranging from imprisonment, domestic violence, loss or delay of benefits, housing challenges and much more. These are intense situations that take a lot of time with one to one support from our staff and volunteers, often calling in partners from other agencies to give more experienced and skilled support in certain areas.
