West Berkshire Homeless (Newbury area) are holding their first AGM on Thursday 31st January at 7.30pm in the Newbury Methodist Church Hall and welcome those who are interested to hear about our exciting first year and our plans for 2019 and beyond.

WBH works tirelessly with the rough sleepers in the area to help them make lifestyle changes by obtaining identification documents for them, signposting them to the correct services, helping them to get job interviews and to find accommodation.  WBH also works alongside those who are under threat of eviction.  WBH is run totally by volunteers and has no Government funding – relying on the generosity of the local community – and fundraising all year round to boost funds.

Keep updated by visiting our Facebook page and website www.westberkshirehomeless.co.uk. Contact wbhomeless@gmail.com for further information.

How you can help
