Last year at the Prebend Centre we supported 338 individuals who attended the centre 20,075 times – 68% were rough sleepers, 15% were vulnerably housed and 17% were socially Isolated. Our team and partners delivered 3358 one-to-one interventions including benefits advice, signposting to housing, drug and alcohol advice, mental health support, sexual health guidance and housing advice. We served 15,210 lunches and more than 18,000 breakfasts were eaten. YOU CAN HELP US CONTINUE TO DO THIS!
