Grants are an essential source of income for St Petrocs and offer huge support to us by providing financial assistance, enabling us to not only continue to deliver our work with some of the most vulnerable in society but to use new and innovative ways to refine, and respond with adaptations to our services. This has especially been true during the rapidly changing and uncertain times we have all been experiencing this year.
Dave Brown (Fundraising and Communications), explains what grants mean to St Petrocs. ‘Grants provide opportunities. They not only help us to keep our services open, but enable innovation and new ways of working with our clients. Everyone we work with has a different story to tell, and they have unique ambitions in a new and stable future for themselves. We need a variety of pathways away from the streets to be as successful as we can be at helping people into safe, sustainable, and secure accommodation. We also get the chance to work with some great partners, many of whom are leaders in their fields. Together, we can end street homelessness.’
