Outreach last night was busy. We never know what to expect so we go prepared.
With SWEP being in place our priority was asking rough sleepers if we could help get them into emergency accommodation. Two took us up on this and Justine set about making the appropriate phone calls. Both were offered a warm safe place to sleep last night.
The rest were fed. We used all the Pot Noodles we took with us, lovely Christmas chocolates and biscuits were given out along with underwear, socks, wipes, deodorant etc.
The ones who do not take advantage of emergency accommodation have their reasons. We can only help them stay warm on street as best we can.
We are here whatever.
