It Takes a City

3 Easter Sunday dessertsWe have been involved with It Takes a City support for the rough sleepers in hotels since Easter 2020, when we opened the church kitchen with a volunteer team to cook on Good Friday and Easter Monday for the 40 rough sleepers accommodated under the government 'Everyone in' scheme, giving the Salvation Army the bank holidays as rest.   The kitchen was open for 7 mornings a week from 23rd April until October, when the majority of those remaining in the covid placements were moved into one large accommodation. At the most there were 120 in accommodation being provided meals by the 3 kitchens. In total until August 2021, we provided more than 110,000 meals, counting three meals a day.

Volunteers also helped with delivery either to main locations or dispersed properties, and other volunteers helped with laundry, finding items for new homes, or lateral flow testing.

We stopped cooking at the beginning of August but are still providing food packages to a few individuals and fully expected to support with food and other support again through this winter.

City Council accommodates 140 rough sleepers.


If you have concerns about someone sleeping rough, please contact the street outreach team via streetlink.org.uk  The message goes straight to SOT so please give as much detail about someone's location as possible and they will go and find them.
