We are proud to be supporting The Day Centre run by Maidstone charity Homeless Care
The centre supports the local homeless community by providing on-site shower and laundry facilities, continental breakfasts and hot and cold lunches. Computers, phones and phone chargers are all available to help with job searching and on-line applications, and a variety of medical and well-being professionals visit on a daily and weekly basis.
Open on weekdays, clients can access support for a variety of health concerns, and practical help such as writing a CV or applying for a job. The centre relies heavily on donations in order to operate through-out the year.
Chartway Group is providing weekly deliveries from a local butcher, currently milk and eggs which help the on-site chef with the preparation of nutritious meals. Staff at Chartway Group are also helping with donations of toiletries, non-perishable food and clothes.
‘We are happy to support such a valuable local charity, it seems fitting that as we are building new homes we are giving back to help people who are less fortunate’ says Ian Savage, CEO at Chartway Group.
Zofia Grzymala, Manager at Homeless Care says ‘We are very grateful to Chartway for the ongoing support of our work in Homeless Care. Extra resources are enabling us to better support homeless people in Maidstone’
