Health & Wellbeing

The rough sleeping and vulnerably housed community frequently live with complex physical and mental health conditions including drug and alcohol dependency. Accessing medical care can be a complex and overwhelming challenge for many of those we support. Wintercomfort works closely with healthcare partners to ensure that people are able to access the services they need.

“Taking the time to help someone fill a GP registration form in or accompanying them to an appointment can make a big difference to someone who feels invisible.”
