The city councillor behind a new scheme geared at helping tackle homelessness in Norwich has said there is an 'open invitation' for further organisations to get involved.
The Pathways scheme is currently made up of seven organisations, each offering a different facet of support.
Included so far are St Martins, Shelter, YMCA Norfolk, The Salvation Army, City Reach, The Feed and Future Projects.
However, Kevin Maguire has said the opportunity is also there for other organisations to support the overall service of the scheme, including volunteers who give up their time to feed vulnerable people in the city.
Other organisations offering support to the city's vulnerable people, include those who provide warm meals in the evenings from Hay Hill, such as the Peoples' Picnic and the Norwich Soup Movement.
