Essentials

A way to receive practical help

Essentials

Essential and practical supplies are available to help someone get back on their feet. We need to make sure everyone has at least access to food, showers and clean clothes . For those who have come off the street, we can offer a bed, a fridge, some furniture and some cooking facilities with recipe cook bags with ingredients.

Cook Bags

As part of our support we make up cook bags with recipes for our guests. They are also asked to attend a Cooking Club at Staysafe. Attendance means learning cooking skills and learning how to cook healthy food on a budget.

Laundry

At our Half-time facility, run in partnership with the YMCA, We have access to a washing machine and tumble dryer where we help wash clothes for those either on our streets or in emergency accommodation.
