We take services to our customers directly using our Community Outreach Vehicle.
This is a:
- Custom-made vehicle
- Facility with medical treatment table, a WC, and a washing area.
- Spacious areas for counselling and support sessions
- place with hot drink and food facilities onboard
- Space with WiFi facilities and phone charging points
The vehicle is used by our Homeless Health Team on outreach in different locations across Stoke-on-Trent.
Funding for the vehicle was provided by the Department for Health – with extra funding from Stoke-on-Trent City Council providing a full-time driver for the vehicle.
Homeless Health Service
Working with North Staffordshire GP Federation, we take the Homeless Health team around Stoke-on-Trent.
This is done without a referral or waiting list – allowing access to vital services when needed.
