An inter-congregational committee arranges participation in the overnight Care Shelter and helps to organise a winter lunch.
We also raise funds for outreach to homeless people and promote awareness of the services which are available in the City Centre.
This year, our Homelessness Group hosted a morning talk and discussion on homelessness, with a wide range of third sector organisations, local businesses and churches. The breakfast food was supplied, appropriately, by Social Bite. The speaker was Russell Barr, Member of Scottish Government Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group (HARSAG) with a discussion afterwards, facilitated by the convenor, Tony Bryer.
Both before and after the main presentation, there was genuine networking and discussion between the nearly forty businesses, charities and churches represented.
