Street Begging in Wolverhampton City Centre
Think Before You Give

We are committed to helping people to get off the street and receive the right support or accommodation they need. We do this by working with local charity support agencies, the Police and Wolverhampton City Council. The reasons why people beg on the street can be complicated and only addressed with the right agency support. Giving money to beggars may make life on the street easier for them in the short term, but, in the worst case, could feed a dependency. It takes more than money to turn a life around.

St. George’s HUB

St. George’s HUB works with the most excluded and vulnerable men in Wolverhampton to assist them out of homelessness and help them secure and retain tenancies. Many of our service users have suffered survived trauma in their lives, finding themselves in intolerable and seemingly hopeless situations. We can help. St. George’s HUB reduces social isolation among men and works to improve men’s long-term physical and mental health.

We provide a daily breakfast service; identity building support; housing, benefits and employment advice; specialist help for male victims of domestic abuse, practical life-skills sessions, e.g. IT, English, budgeting, arts, sports and healthy living activities.

We also work closely with other local bodies, making St. George’s HUB a ‘one-stop shop’ of support. We never turn people away and we are often their last hope when other projects cannot help.

Case Study

Paul is a 51-year-old man, a born and bred Wulfrunian. He has a number of disabilities and health issues but has never let this prevent him being an active citizen in the local community. Unfortunately, there have been occasions where his insecure private tenancies have ended and he has found himself temporarily homeless. He has found our Breakfast Club service invaluable, both as a source of a hot nutritious breakfast but also as a means of accessing a wide range of housing and benefits advice and support. As a direct result of using the Breakfast Club, accommodation was found and Paul is now volunteering at a local soup kitchen. He has also utilised many of the other services available at St. George’s HUB such as obtaining essential I.D and participated in a number of life-skill sessions that have boosted his confidence and self-esteem.
