Routes to Roots - Poole (CIO)

Charity description

Routes to Roots - Poole (CIO) logo
R2R is a Poole charity with a Christian ethos providing a personalised service to rough sleepers and vulnerably housed adults, to enable them to become rooted in the community.

Routes to Roots seeks to help all homeless and vulnerably housed people in Poole. R2R provides basic necessities, such as hot food, clothing and sleeping bags, at drop-ins and offers indoor and outdoor motivational activities, which aim to boost self-confidence and develop skills. It works closely with partner organisations, in such areas as health, addiction and skills training including advice sessions with Poole CAB and a PACT outreach clinic. In addition, internet and telephone facilities, ‘care of address’ and one-to-one support, guidance and information are provided. In a major new development, thanks to the support of Green Pastures, Routes to Roots is able to provide supported accommodation to three of Poole’s homeless from September 2015. Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales has granted R2R £15,000 to fund the costs of volunteer
training and a Client Assessment and Outcome Monitoring Database, which will greatly strengthen its effectiveness.
