Well the time has come!
Whilst working in housing in Worcester, myself and some of the most vulnerable people in the area have been supported by the wonderful people who work at Maggs.
If you have not heard of them;
Maggs is a Worcester-based homeless charity, founded in 1984, that supports the homeless & vulnerable throughout the county.
Maggs has two day centres, one on Deansway in Worcester (open Monday to Friday) & the other on Newtown Road in Malvern (open Tuesday & Friday), providing free breakfasts for rough sleepers, along with showers, laundry facilities, 1:1 support & safe social gathering spaces.
They have drop-in surgeries for GPs, podiatrists, dentists & more along with social coffee mornings & animal therapy sessions.
They have an outreach team who operate county wide, engaging with the unengaged, the vulnerable & isolated.
Maggs also has a Harm Reduction Team (HRT) & an Intervention & Transition Team (ITT) who work closely to help rehabilitate those with criminal, alcohol & substance misuse problems.
Maggs Clothing Project (MCP) & Maggs Accommodation Project (MAP) helps to transition individuals from life on the streets to independent living & beyond.
Maggs & MAGGStock are also on Facebook."
Maggs will be holding its very own festival next year - proceeds from my head shave will go towards this, as well as providing the day-to-day essentials they desperately need to keep supporting homeless and vulnerable people of Worcester
