We have been asked this week What made you start this group up. So here is the Answer.
In 2014 Newport Council decided to stop the buses through the main street in Pillgwenly (known as Pill) 2 residents decided to start a petition , while collecting the signatures to get the buses going again they noticed the amount of litter on streets. They decided that something should be done . This is how the group was formed. Pip Supporting the homeless was started November 2018. Big thanks to all the volunteers old and new.
Great event again this year . Met lots of lovely people who came to our stand and all gave positive feedback. Also spoke to lots of people from a wide variety of groups and businesses who are doing great work in our city 💚
Great fun this evening with our homeless, everyone happy 😁 lots of advice given out this evening about accessing services. Two trolley loads of clothes, blankets and pillows given out along with 12 air beds and a couple of tents. All the food went as well as the meal tickets and hair cut vouchers. Thanks to everyone who donated this week and to our supporting restaurants 💚 and salons 💚

Lots of donations given out this week and this evening.
It’s hard work with our little group all working full time, having family commitments and all the work running PIP behind the scenes, but we’ve managed to go through everything and are so grateful for all your donations. The boots of our cars, spare bedrooms and dinning rooms look fairly normal again 😁, as sadly we do not have the luxury of a storage unit ….. but are always open to offers!!! 😉😉😉
Homelessness is a complicated issue and our followers entrust us with generous donations every week, we try our damned hardest to make sure everyone gets what they need, but it’s complicated and chaotic when you live on the streets. So we very often use common sense and discretion when giving items out.
We are in Newport City Centre from 7pm till 10pm every Sunday anyone who has questions or would like to meet us…. you know where we are.
It’s totally inappropriate to comment on social media about individual cases and we enjoy face to face discussions. 💚 We would never name or take pictures of our homeless friends for social media .
