Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Every year I try and raise money and awareness for our local hospital. This year I thought I'd focus that attention on people that have limited to no access of simple healthcare due to being homeless. Having personally seen how mental health affects our young community and in one particular instance, led to a young man going homeless in Poole and ultimately found on a park bench frozen in London, really struck a chord with me. So having access to health professionals could help limit and treat illness even signpost them to better outcome.

This year some of our Duke of Edinburgh students volunteered for Healthbus and opened my eyes to the effective work supporting our community by Healthbus. Raising awareness and money for them is the least I can do.

The chosen charity Healthbus, enables accessibility for those experiencing homelessness to receive appropriate care that's GP led in and around the Bournemouth areas. Offering clinical appointments, mobile drop ins, Specialist Mental Health Nurse and working close through a multidisciplinary partnership to deliver an equal right to effective evidence based healthcare.
