Together with a group of Directors, I visited Lodging House Mission and heard again of the amazing work done there by the team. It is not just about providing approximately 120 hot lunches every day, or providing shelter in the coldest months of the year, but it is about giving people the opportunity to get their lives back on track by enabling them to develop new skills and feelings of self worth.

To use the words of Lodging House Mission, “one of our core objectives is to get our service users off the streets as opposed to helping them survive there.”
