We spoke to Sam who volunteered at a London hotel during this crisis.
Before the coronavirus outbreak began, Sam had been volunteering with St Mungo’s for six months as a First Responder.
His role was to support our outreach teams by finding people sleeping rough, freeing up their time to work directly with clients.
From NHS staff, to supermarket workers, to our very own teams at St Mungo’s. Every single person who has been working hard throughout this crisis to meet the needs of others deserves to be celebrated.
Unfortunately, the First Response programme was temporarily paused due to coronavirus. But this didn’t stop Sam from wanting to help. He decided to volunteer at a London hotel which was being used to accommodate people sleeping rough during the crisis.
