SVP work in North Norfolk given national focus

The SVP North Norfolk Conference work providing temporary emergency accommodation was highlighted in a national SVP webinar last week.

SVP hosts national webinars twice a month covering many topics from Vincentian response to Domestic Abuse, Modern Day Slavery, Working with prisons and Accompanying beneficiaries through a cost-of-living crisis.

Last week the subject was the Temporary Emergency Accommodation provided by our the North Norfolk Conference run by Michael McMahon and Steve James.  

Joan Wall, SVP East Anglia Central Council President, said: “The presentation was given by Joey Garande who manages the project, and he gave us information about how people become in need of emergency accommodation, from ill health, redundancy, moving on from prison and many other heart-breaking stories.

“SVP owns three houses in Sheringham and Cromer and they house families and single people. Joey gave us statistics about numbers of people they have helped and length of stay. It was crucial to work closely with the local authority in the set up and management of the houses and safeguarding standards needing to be set up.”
