Sanctuary Supported Living has begun working with Deal Area Emergency Foodbank to help people who have housing issues.
Funded by Kent County Council, the service works with other professionals, agencies and individuals and has strong links with vouchers holders at Deal Area Emergency Foodbank. The housing service provides support and life skills for independent living, reports Kent Online.
Julia Thompson, foodbank project co-ordinator, said: “Sanctuary Supported Living has an amazing team of support workers who all go the extra mile to help clients.
