Welcome to our Springtime Newsletter in this our 25th Anniversary year. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of our activities and some of our valued volunteers. HAB is currently managing the transition from ‘lockdown’ to more open access operations at the Centre. We continue to support hundreds of people experiencing homelessness and housing problems (over 700 people in 2021). Our support within new projects is offering secure and good quality accommodation for dozens of clients - helping them to move on. We also continue to support with advice, food supplies, one-to-one action planning and the practical support of clothing, hot food and showers at HAB.
Finally some words of thanks – to all of our volunteers and donors. Thank you to Finchley Reform Synagogue for their 8th Rung donations – enabling us to have a dedicated Outreach Officer. Thanks also to our great staff team and a special mention for NonStopAction, Places for People and the Salinger Family for their sponsorship of our Big Barnet Sleep Out.
Enjoy the read!
