Coordinator's Report
by Katie Thomson, Advice & Information Coordinator

We saw again declining numbers accessing the Hub this month - perhaps reflective of the lovely weather we had!  However, we know from our friends at F3 that this was their busiest year yet, and had to appeal for more donations to top up to ensure everyone got the help they needed throughout the summer holidays.  

Everyone is finding things tough - but there are lots of community initiatives that are based on giving people a hand up, rather than a hand out.  At the Hub, we have always tried to recognise that those in poverty have value, skills and something to contribute.  We want to ensure that those who attend here are not seen as "cases", but as people who have aspirations and skills, and we need to work together to bring out the best in each other as a community.
