WCA-background Windsor Christian Action (WCA) was formed in 2013 and assumed responsibility for two projects. FoodShare joined Windsor Christian Action in July and we are delighted to have this important service under the WCA charity.
- Windsor Street Angels who patrol Windsor late at night and offer protection to vulnerable people
- Homeless Project offers empathy and practical support to the homeless and vulnerable.
- FoodShare provides food for families and individuals who would otherwise be going hungry.
Street Angels and the Homeless Project receive significant support, both in money and in kind, from churches, individuals and organisations. FoodShare also receive amazing support from the community by receiving food donations especially from Tesco’s in Dedworth and Waitrose.
All three projects depend almost entirely upon the time and commitment given by our volunteers who are good hearted and we are immensely proud and humbled by the work that they do.
Homeless Project We employ three part-time staff to coordinate the work of the Project and to support the guests.
- Murphy James – Manager
- Jane Deakin – Head of Volunteers, Corporate & Community Liaison
- Sally Wright – Head of Care Coordination
Street Angels receives a huge amount of active support from David Bullock, a Police Community Support Officer, whose involvement is highly valued.
- PCSO David Bullock has been the driving force behind The Street Angels, providing ongoing support to the team. David ensures there is a team patrolling Windsor each week, he also coordinates all the training for any new volunteers.
- Corinne Leatherbarrow is Street Angels Promotion, Fund-raising and Recruitment Worker and assists PCSO David Bullock with the recruitment of new volunteers, spreading the word of the amazing work our volunteers do and raising awareness about the charity!!
FoodShare Sarah Howard manages and coordinates the project along with her team of volunteers.
