Thank You BCARS Volunteers!

Over the last year in Bournemouth we have seen amazing growth in the number of volunteers wanting to get alongside rough sleepers… 344 to be precise!!

A celebration and challenge event was held to say thank you to all those involved & recognise the difference we are making through our 4 projects:

  • 1) Half Time
  • 2) Sleepsafe
  • 3) 2nd Half¬† a) Training kitchen b ) Carpenters’ Worshop
  • 4) Buddies

Our project Sleepsafe finished on 1/04/19 after 5 months of supporting rough sleepers in our churches across the town. 61 People accessed the project, 78% (48) were supported into move-on accommodation, which is brilliant! Thank you again for your amazing support.

However there is a challenge: How do we maintain the interest and momentum for this work post Sleepsafe? Here’s how:

We have a number of different volunteer placements across our projects plus 2 other areas we need help on including admin & logistsics. So we are asking you to express your interest NOW to to see if you can help us ensure this work continues and grows.
