Glass Door Women's Group Distribution Day
Updated: Feb 26, 2020
Since Wellness Kits began in 2018, we have connected with Glass Door to include their contact information and services in our bags.
This year, we were honoured to have donated 30 women's bags to their weekly drop in group, which serves both rough sleepers and recently housed women who still attend the group for ongoing support. One challenge we faced in our first year of outreaches, was not being able to find as many female rough sleepers on the streets of London as we were able to find men. For this reason, being able to do a huge drop of Wellness Kits in one go and knowing they were going right to the women who would benefit them was a great opportunity for us.
We also donated 10 mens bags for homeless men who use Glass Door's services.
Though the outreaches to rough sleepers are the main focus at WK, we hope to continue doing large drops of bags at other shelters and charities who would benefit from them, to make sure we are reaching as many people as possible.
