Camrose Centre - Extra Day of Support

Basingstoke Voluntary Action By Basingstoke Voluntary Action

The Camrose Centre is a drop-in centre to help homeless and vulnerable people. We want to open the centre for an extra day so that those who are sleeping rough can come and get breakfast.

This project was funded on 08 Mar 2017!

Off the back of our previous successful campaign to open a night shelter and a shower room, the idea is to open the centre for 2.5 hours on a Friday morning so that those who are sleeping rough can come and get breakfast and some extra support from staff. The Camrose Centre may need to recruit new staff and volunteers to cover these extra hours (9.00am -13.00pm including set up/ clear down)

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide breakfast for the rough sleepers on Friday Mornings
  • Provide extra support for those who are sleeping rough

Why it's a great idea:

This is a great idea because breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it is providing another time during the week for people who are sleeping rough to be able to go and get the help and support they need.

Steps to get it done:

  • Find staff to cover the extra hours (may have to be some new staff)
  • Hire the hall for Fridays
  • Get the things needed for p[eople to be able to have breakfast.
