Soup run convention

Following some preliminary discussions with members of the Council's Housing and Neighbourhood Renewal programme, and City Centre Outreach team, concerning the work done by volunteers in caring for homeless people on the city's streets, a meeting of two dozen volunteers (hereafter to be called Street Carers) was held tonight at City United Reformed Church in Windsor Place, to share ideas about the work and see if there was any common ground on which to establish a common training, mutual support and a measure of public recognition that would make possible an effective partnership with the local authority's social services, for the benefit of people on the streets.

A new blog has been created to record further development as it happens. Cardiff Street Care Chronicle
