How important are volunteers to The Bridge Trust , and what sort of things do they do ?
As we deal with vulnerable people , we don ’ t use many volunteers with our support work . However we couldn ’ t run our shops without lots of volunteers and our quarterly mailings would take a lot longer to complete without a team we have who work at our office .
What are your ultimate aims ?
As with most charities , our dream would be to put ourselves out of business because there were no more homeless people to help ! However , numbers of homeless people are increasing , not decreasing so that really is a dream as opposed to an aim or objective . Therefore our aim is to give accommodation and support to as many homeless people as we can , ultimately moving them on into sustained and fulfilled independent living .
