Homeground celebrates 15th birthday
Stephen Hawkins, Chief Executive of Local Solutions welcomed former and current residents and staff and representatives of partner agencies to Homegrounds fifteenth birthday celebration on 5th December 2007.
Homeground has been an established provider of accommodation and support for young homeless people, aged 16 to 35 since 1992.
Many former residents enjoyed the opportunity to return to Homeground to mark the occasion and reflect on how the hostel has helped them. One former resident said that when she stayed at Homeground it had been the launch-pad for her new life.
The building, formerly owned by Vernon Pools Ltd. and gifted to Local Solutions by the Ladbroke Group Ltd in 1999, now houses a number of other Local Solutions’ services including Homecare and the Merseyside Accommodation Project.
Housekeeper Joan Tootle was also acknowledged during the event for 14 years of dedicated service to the hostel.
