Rough Sleeper stories featured in the Ilford Recorder
The Ilford Recorder has published stories and video interviews with two rough sleepers in Redbridge, Aimad (who has been sleeping rough for two years) and Danute (five years).
Redbridge Together, of which the Recorder is a media partner, aims to raise £500,000 for Project Malachi and The Welcome Centre.
Project Malachi will see a temporary hostel by created from recycled shipping containers in Chadwick Road, Ilford. Your donations will help Project Malachi help more of the borough’s most vulnerable rough sleepers for as long as it is needed.
The Welcome Centre, in St Mary’s Road, helps with providing hot meals, showers, clothing and laundry but also advice and support, training and employment and a nurse-led clinic supporting health and mental health.
Businesses can support by donating money, raising funds, displaying Redbridge Together promotional material or offering work placements.
The campaign is an association between Ilford Salvation Army, The Welcome Centre, Ilford BID, the Ilford Recorder and Redbridge Council.
