Sanctuary Trust SOX day 7th – 11th December
Halifax Branches around Manchester will be holding a Homeless Awareness Week and collecting for Sanctuary Trust.
People can give socks or donate money at the Halifax branches around Manchester including Rochdale, Bury, Oldham, Ashton, Eccles and around North Wales including Colwyn Bay.
Why SOCKS??? Rough sleepers quite often suffer Trench Foot; which comes about from wearing wet socks or not changing socks for prolonged periods.
Sanctuary Trust are making a real change to people’s lives who have stumbled on hard times. But also we are now educating all our service users in our Action Training programme which helps them
- Identify personal values
- understand how values impact on well being
- Building self-esteem
- Taking responsibility
- Managing a tenancy
- Avoid common pitfalls
A version of this programme is also being delivered to schools that provide educational provision for pupils who are out of mainstream schools for a variety of reasons that include exclusion, emotional and behavioural difficulties, medical reasons, pregnancy and young mothers in a bid to prevent future homelessness.
