Tranmere Rovers in the Community today collaborated with Tranmere Rovers Trust and Wirral Ways to distribute 60 food parcels to hostels around Wirral.
The Tranmere Rovers Trust assembled the parcels, which were distributed to hostels where individuals facing a variety of challenges, such as substance abuse, addiction, chronic homelessness, mental health problems, and domestic violence, are residing. Many of these individuals are receiving support from Wirral Ways.
Hostels, like those established by the Forum Housing Association where the parcels were delivered today, provide support services to individuals who are at risk of homelessness, about to become homeless, or already homeless.
They focus on developing confidence, skills, resilience, and positive life choices to enable people to live independently, be self-reliant, and become valued members of their community.
Amid the cost-of-living crisis, the hostels are deeply grateful for any support they get in caring for the people they house. The network of individuals connected through Wirral Ways made it possible for the food parcels to be delivered.
Matt Houghton, Senior Community Manager at Tranmere Rovers, said, “We know that many people are currently struggling with the cost of living increases; so much so that getting food and essentials can be a real challenge.
“Together with the Tranmere Trust and with the support of our partners at Wirral Ways, we’ve distributed these food hampers to those in need. Tranmere is more than a football club and this over the next couple of months, we’ll continue to support our community through what is a difficult time.”
