Helping People who are Homeless in Exeter and the Surrounding Area

St Petrock’s is a small, local charity working to support people in and around Exeter who are homeless or vulnerably housed.  Through its homelessness resource centre in Cathedral Yard, and via its housing services in the community, they provide a range of emergency, support and prevention services to help vulnerable people rebuild their lives and make the transition to independent living. 

Linda says: “In addition to our other housing, welfare and mental health services, we have recently launched a Rough–Sleeper survival service where project workers go out into the city every weekday morning and provide people who are experiencing homelessness with packs of food and drink and other necessary items for survival.  Being a member of FareShare South West will facilitate our provision of survival services to these

Distributing food involves more than meeting basic human need. It builds connection and a groundwork for specialist support in St Petrock’s centre so longer term needs are met. We prepare lunch bags for rough sleepers in our own kitchen at the St Petrock’s centre

FareShare is the only charity to take food from the wholesale level of the food industry

The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
