Donation from SVS29 Jan 2019

"Certain elements of our work attract little or no public funding. Often it is these hard to fund elements that can and do provide that little bit extra needed to make a lasting change in someone’s life. For example, clothes for an interview, a bag of toiletries, a bus pass or bike to get to work, equipment required for college/school or a training course that can help someone achieve the qualifications needed to move into work.
"We very much appreciate the support and generosity of SVS staff in raising money to invest in the Foyer, allowing us to continue to be imaginative in our approach in providing local people in our communities, who are most in need, a stepping stone into independent living, learning and work."
