Another year on and IQPC London proudly clubbed together to support a charity close to many of our hearts.
Having heard a truly shocking statistic recently that in 2018 we had the highest number of rough sleepers dying – 726 people died on the streets last year, that’s almost 2 per day. It is more important than ever we support those in need around us and give back, especially with the cold months we have fast approaching.
The Passage offer a wide range of services in Westminster for rough sleepers, aiming to help them address the issues that have contributed to them being – or are keeping them – homeless, and to enable them to move on to live safe, happy and fulfilling lives. They also have dedicated substance misuse workers who provide support to people with long and enduring substance misuse issues and skilled mental health workers to support those with mental health issues.
So to help The Passage continue their fantastic work, IQPC collected and donated useful items that could make all the difference to those in need, such as shoes, warm clothes, sleeping bags, toiletries, bags and food. The van is loaded and the donations are off to great cause!
A huge thank you to all of the team for your very kind and generous donations collected across the business and of course, the IQPC Charity Committee for organizing this. Please take some time today to check out The Passage website: http://passage.org.uk/ and see how you could also get involved.
