Emergency  temporary shelters & Food parcels


Temporary Men's Shelters

During lockdown we ran two temporary covid-19 shelters for men.

The temporary shelter at God First Church Rosebank, accommodated 17 homeless men. It ran from the 23 April to the 30 June. Activities the homeless men enjoyed during the day include gym classes, literacy lessons, watching TV and packing food parcels for the needy. 

The Rosebank Union Church's temporary shelter operated from the 8 April to the 14 May 2020 and accommodated 40 homeless men. We provided 5450 meals, hot showers, and a warm safe environment to our temporary residents.
