At One Big Family we don’t just hand things out on the streets, there is so much more we do. Our aim is to signpost people to the services they really need and support them.

Recently some of our volunteers took first aid courses which may come in very useful on street.

We also meet with other services such as the council, housing, addiction support to see where there are gaps and where improvements can be made.

Yesterday I met with a lady from the DWP who was amazing and so informative. She talked to me about barriers people may face and how we can remove those barriers and gave vital information on provision for those who are street homeless.

It is all about communication and services pulling together and using their knowledge and skills to get the people we help to where they need to be.

Thanks for reading, Jayne.
