Alex Wallace 365 Shelter/ ‘Get To Know’ Workshops Lead

I lead two of our projects, 365 Shelter and the ‘Get to Know’ workshops. The two projects complement each other really well – the research that keeps our workshop up-to-date forces us to think about ways to improve the night shelter, and inviting people from the workshops to volunteer gives people an opportunity to really understand what their contribution is worth.
