Tackling homelessness in Devizes
Homelessness is an issue that affects communities across the country, with homelessness numbers increasing year on year.
For the past few years, Devizes OpenDoors has been working to support those affected in the local area by providing hot meals, cleaning facilities and much more.
Last year, we provided the charity with a grant from our 2020 Community Fund to help cover laundry costs. They couldn’t make full use of the grant due to coronavirus restrictions, but with things starting to return to normal the funding has begun making a real difference.
John Saunders, Chair of Devizes OpenDoors, tells us more.
