We have linked up with service providers in Peterborough including City Council housing officers, GPs, hairdressers, chiropodists, employment agencies, alcohol and drugs support specialists and arts therapists. These services visit The Garden House on a regular basis to support the rough sleepers in Peterborough that come through our doors. While there is a few paid staff required to run this project, the project is mainly run by volunteers who are kind enough to donate their time to the rough sleepers in Peterborough. This is why The Garden House is such a special place, because of the love and free gift of time that the volunteers so willingly give.
The Garden House is a project that really will change the lives of those that come through our doors, because people in the darkest of places are given hope and made to feel valued and supported during some of the biggest challenges they will ever face. We need your help to ensure that we can continue running this project to the very best of our abilities. If you are able to run any sessions for our rough sleepers in Peterborough, can donate your time as a volunteer or you are able to donate financially to keep the Garden House open, please contact us – or donate here.
“A place of peace in amongst the chaos.”
