Signpost – established in 2017 The Signpost project was born out of a commitment to reach out to those on the margins of our community to help support them in sourcing the housing, food, benefits and emotional support they need. The project continued to function during the various lockdowns. With our current resources, we were able to provide a meal twice a week.
The Project runs weekly on Thursdays for meals and Saturdays for teas, coffees and snacks and once a month on a Saturday for a full breakfast. Also, a Christmas meal has been held annually during the festive season, which proved to be a great success with many homeless and vulnerable people attending. Through the various donations given, Christmas bags containing clothing and toiletries were given out. As the project grows, various avenues of funding are being pursued to help maintain and further expand the immensely impacting work of the project.
We also offer food bags containing non-perishable food items. There is an ever increasing demand for these and we are receiving regular referrals from the council for our services. Signpost also offers free haircuts from one of its volunteer barbers.
For those most in need they are taken to the Eagles boxing club to utilise showering facilities and change into new clothing that Signpost provides. We know that many of the schools and behavioural units with whom we work have families that are struggling to feed their children. We have been supplying those identified by the schools with food bags.
