The sanctuary Trust has received 40 emergency kits to help our us respond to the threat of Covid 19. Comprising of Hand sanitizer, face mask, gloves and other material, we have been able to provide rough sleepers in the Borough of Rochdale with potentially lifesaving equipment during this difficult period.
Homeless-Friendly encourages organisations to lead the way in creating a cultural shift in how we view those without a permanent home and remind them they are a pivotal part of our society. Organised by not-for-profit social enterprise Beacon GP CARE, it asks that we examine the way we conduct our business and pledge to become Homeless-Friendly. NHS surgeries and other healthcare providers are amongst the first to make that commitment but any public, voluntary or private organisation can join in. We offer advice on how to become Homeless-Friendly, encourage our pledgers to share good practice and work with our partners to offer practical support to the homeless and tackle the roots of the problem.
The Sanctuary Trust would like to thank the homelessness friendly network for their invaluable support.
