“Demand for our services has increased hugely over the last 12 months and this year we are growing our mental health support by providing a domestic abuse ‘Survivors Network’, youth mentoring and young ambassador training, more community connector sessions, targeted support sessions and activities for adults, as well as exciting community events.”

Felicity James, skills development and community engagement manager at St Paul’s Hostel, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen as one of the two charities of the year. This gives us the platform to explain how mental health is a major cause of chronic homelessness and is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness.”
