    Story

    2 years ago Birmingham Support Group started to notice more homeless people in Birmingham. The Charity was told about this group of volunteers who get together every week to provide different elements of support for people who need it. They provide bedding and clothing as well as supplying hot and cold food on the night.
    Birmingham Support Group became involved to try to make a positive difference in the community, groups like this are essential some warm food and drink can make a large difference. On the night Birmingham Support Group make warm drinks for upwards of 250 people and hand out clothing or sleeping bags etc. Sometimes people really need someone to talk to and it’s important as a volunteer we are there when people need it.
    One of the regular attendees, a young lad called Danny passed away last year 2016. Since then Birmingham Support Group have set up a group to try to put people in touch with missing families by carrying a spare mobile phone with them so that anyone who wants to call a family member can do anytime they like free of charge.
    They have an outreach function within the group that goes out to people who are sleeping rough and give them a few kind words and some food or bits of clothing.
    A week never goes by without someone telling them that I’m the first person they have spoken to all day or that it’s the first hot drink of the day they have had..
