More than Crackers and Turkey
It has been exciting to see the rop in grow as we have established relationships with the tenants of a group of B&Bs close to the drop in centre… funnily enough, this is how Justlife Manchester started. We have been supporting people in a number of ways including issues around housing, health, mental health and accessing services.
Christmas is a time for celebration, but for many people it is a reminder of just how isolated they are. Chatting to one guy at the Christmas lunch he mentioned that this is his first Christmas dinner out of prison in 13 years… it was very emotional and a privilege to share with him.
We wish staff, volunteers, service users and supporters of our Brighton drop in a very Merry Christmas!
