Lois, recently hosted Canon John Deeny and Declan Keogh, from Caritas Plymouth for a visit to St Petrocs to introduce them to our work first hand, and share more about our services and the challenges facing those who are homeless or vulnerably housed in Cornwall.

The day began with visiting our resource centre at the Liskerrett Centre in Liskeard where they met Adam, Outreach Worker and Paul, Supported Accommodation Officer. They then moved on to visit our houses in Liskeard and Bodmin, where Henry, St Petrocs CEO joined, and residents chatted and kindly showed them around their houses.

Caritas Plymouth supports the mission of the Catholic Church through social action. Steve Ellis, Vice President, is on their committee and has supported their strategy to support the work of homelessness.
