We are pleased to announce we have been awarded a grant from The Garfield Weston Foundation, a family-founded charitable grant-making trust which supports a wide range of charitable activities across the UK. The £30,000 grant will assist to fund Falcon Support Services new Drop In service.

 

“We’re delighted that The Garfield Weston Foundation has awarded us a grant which will help our charity deliver community services for local people.” said Rachel Hall, Head of Service Development. The Drop In provides a holistic approach when working with the service users to give the individual a realistic chance to break the cycle of homelessness. We do this by:

  • Meeting immediate needs for those in crisis and rough sleeping, including shower facilities, toiletries, use of a washing machine, clothes donations and food through Minnie’s Kitchen and emergency food parcels.
  • Pro-active action to end rough sleeping by providing an open access service with support available including debt management, housing, benefits, mental health, substance misuse services, referrals to specialist services.
  • Opportunities to inspire change, including access to education, training, employment, volunteering, as well as providing a programme of meaningful activities.
