We at The Pilion Trust would like to let everyone know that The Caledonian Road Methodist Church are NOT throwing The Shelter Me! Young Person’s Crash Pad out…
They kindly let us use the basement of their church during the winter months December – April.
The Crash Pad fits in around the churches life and we would like to categorically state THEY ARE NOT THROWING US OUT and take this opportunity to send them a very warm thank them you for their generosity; help and partnership work.
Due to the government’s hard line policies on young people and charities creating hardship and increased homelessness which we foresee as becoming a long term all year round issue.
We have found that there is an urgent need to continue the work we have been doing and so are looking for another more permanent and suitable building.
It’s not the churches job to have to house young people all year around.
The Caledonian Methodist Church were the only people who came to help The Pilion Trust and these young people during the freezing spell of 2010/11 and our CEO spoke to a lot of people and our relationship has been built up since then and we are pained that people have misunderstood the serious and primary reason for the video, which is to highlight the plight of the young people and not to malign the very kind hearted actions of The Caledonian Road Methodist Church and their congregation.
