A charity helping homeless people in Weston-super-Mare has received a donation from a housing association.

Somewhere To Go, in the Boulevard, helps people living on the streets with its community outreach nurses.

It also offers hot meals and support to people who are sleeping rough.

The nurses help homeless people access identification documents, which can often prove a barrier for them accessing the services they need.

Alliance Living Support, which is run by housing association Alliance Homes, has donated £300 to the charity and its community partnership nurses, to enable them to continue this work.

Tony Hall from Alliance Living Support said: “Everything we do at Alliance Living aims to promote independence and create opportunities.

“With strong partnership working we can make a lasting difference to vulnerable people in our community.”

It is the third year in a row Alliance Living Support has donated the money to Somewhere To Go.
