The Oldham Pass it on Scheme is involved in all sorts of activities to support the people of Oldham during Covid 19 pandemic. From delivering food parcels, to ensuring recently housed rough sleepers receive tenancy ready training – the pass it on scheme has made a huge impact both relieving and preventing disadvantage across the Borough of Oldham.
One of our rising pass it on stars, Sean, joined the team 6 months ago. Coming from a background of homelessness himself, Sean has overcome addictions to drugs and alcohol and is now committed to helping others who are going through similar situations.
This week all his volunteer work has paid off, he was successfully recruited to join the Rough sleeper sweep team. As a paid member of this team, Sean will be responsibly for proactively engaging with rough sleepers and being that first point of contact at night times.
On behalf of the Sanctuary Trust, we thank Sean for all his efforts so far and wish his all the very best as he progresses in his career. Sean, you are an inspiration to us all.
