Steetcare Volunteers

Steetcare Project
To assist the “Homeless” and others on the pavement, or in hostels, or in the community generally, who are in need of assistance. This may be visually / verbally / writing asking for help, looking like they need assistance or simply presenting as in need of assistance. Assistance comes in the form of our 2 initiatives - the TWALK and the TDROP The TWALK, every Wednesday evening, around the city centre and the west end, provides hot drinks, soup, other foods and warm clothing on a non-judgemental basis for those who present as needing support. And it provides a listening ear for people who find themselves living in isolation and provides information on services and organisations available to assist those in need. The TDROP, promotes the ethos of ‘zero waste’ by working with stores in Glasgow to ensure that any food that they have, due to be disposed of, can be used by the Project. Our TDROP activity takes place 5 nights a week and we make 15 different collections during the week. By distributing these goods to those who present as needing support or to “Homeless” shelters., or to Community food initiatives.
