We have just published our annual report which covers the period July 2017 – June 2018. We use this time period as it covers the complete winter which helps us to better gauge the number of homeless living in Gravesend.
As with last year, the numbers are staggering. In the 12 month period covered by the report we dealt with 189 individual guests, served 2,272 hot meals, provided 638 showers and washed 814 bundles of laundry.
The profile of the people we served also changed with many more females guests and worryingly, more older people who are less able to cope with the winter conditions.
It was also a year of celebration with many of guests getting accomodation and coming back to serve within the Sanctuary family.
