A health and wellbeing day for the homeless will be held this week at Somewhere To Go.
North Somerset Council health trainer Debbie Stone and charity director Joan Eales have teamed up to host a one-day event for sofa surfers and rough sleepers.
Vets, hairdressers, trainers and nurses will be on hand to offer advice, health checks and services to support some of Weston-super-Mare’s most vulnerable people.
Debbie said: “I had the idea of bringing together organisation to provide a one-stop-shop session to help those who are homeless.
“The response has been really positive although we are still looking for a dentist who can provide free dental checks and an optician.”
There will be people from the YMCA, Alliance Homes, Addaction and the Samaritans to offer their help and support.
The event will be held at Somewhere To Go, in Boulevard, today (Friday) from 10.30am-2pm.
