Teardrops Supporting Your Community have had some really positive news. Thanks to long term funding from the National Lottery Community Fund we have been able to secure service delivery for three years. Although this doesn’t fully meet the demand on our service it gives us the stability to continue to grow and help more and more people. Thankfully, this funding also includes much needed funds to cover some of our rent and utility bills for the next three years. This means we can continue to deliver services and food to our service users.
We are continuing to seek additional funding to meet the demand and support more people across St Helens and hope to see continued growth in 2021.
We The Hub Worker will be on hand to sort through donations, make up food parcels and support service users with things such as fresh clothes, shoes, and essential personal items.
Homeless Prevention Worker
As part of this three year funding we have managed to secure funding for our Homeless Prevention Worker who will be supporting not only homeless people but families, single people and couples who are at risk of homelessness. They will continue to support people with things such as:-
- DWP Applications
- Housing applications to social, private, and supported accommodation landlords
- Universal Credit,
- New style ESA, New style JSA
- Work capability questionnaires
- Under One Roof Applications
- PIP forms
- CVs, to help gain employment
- Support people in opening a bank account or Obtaining ID,
- Emergency food packs
- Welfare assistance
- Telephone Advice & Support
- Signposting & referrals to meet individual needs
- Help with GP registration
Our service only works because of the fantastic team of volunteers that we have. We will continue to support them and as service demand increases continue to build on our excellent team of volunteers by recruiting, training and supporting them in everything that we do.
