Bromley PARISH CHURCH'S Homeless starter packS
The starter packs scheme provides people with bedding, crockery, pots and pans, and basic items such as toiletries and washing up liquid when they move into accommodation. The recipients are typically victims of domestic violence or previously street homeless.
The chart on the left shows the number of packs given out in the last 5 years. On the right is the number (50) to the end of February 2023 with the number (300) that are likely to be needed if the current demand in these first two months of 2023 continues in red.
2022 was a record year, which meant that there were insufficient donations of second hand of pots, pans etc., leading to very high costs which have left our bank account overdrawn. If you, your family, or friends have any of the items listed as needed, please donate them. You will be helping those in need at no cost to yourself and saving items from going to the land fill. You can see a list of items needed in the Appendix or on our website
