GERALDINE SHARES HER STORY...
When I was homeless and destitute due to addiction and mental health problems, I would go to food handouts and soup kitchens in the morning and evening around Victoria station. During the day though, to 8pm or sometimes till midnight, there was nothing to drink or eat. It would have been great to be able to get a cup of tea and a sandwich. Somewhere safe to store my belongings would have meant I wouldn't have lost my passport, driver's licence and items of sentimental value. Having access to a telephone to call my parents. Somewhere to wash my clothes and get a haircut would have amazing. These basic needs are denied to the street homeless. I feel Reconnect will provide these basic services, and help integrate homeless people into our communities.
