St Petrock’s is launching an exciting new project to re-cycle & re-purpose donations, provide volunteering and training opportunities, and engage with the Exeter community.
Petrock’s Place, a pop-up hub and vintage charity shop, is coming soon to Exeter’s Paris Street city-centre (watch this space for details!)
This is a project for the whole Exeter community - and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
The first half of 2021 has been very busy for St Petrock's homelessness teams. Continually adapting to the changing Covid-context, we've worked hard to maintain and carefully develop the in-person, personalised support that is so vitally important for many of the rough-sleepers we work with.
Between January and June 2021, our teams had 2,570 'contacts' with rough-sleepers and vulnerably housed people around the streets of Exeter, and supported 2,254 client visits to St Petrock's centre for more focussed support.
