Honeycomb Group awarded over £4,000 to support vulnerable people this winter
People impacted by homelessness, domestic abuse and more will receive further support from Honeycomb Group this winter thanks to over £4,000 from Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
As a Group, we support individuals and families across the city who have experienced abusive relationships, homelessness, complex needs and those who have been discharged from hospital and need extra help.
The council's winter funding will enable us to provide specific winter support to all of these people as the weather gets colder. This includes tailored ‘winter warmer packs’ – containing hats, gloves and hot water bottles - utility top-ups and essential food.

Honeycomb Group's Director of Support and Wellbeing, Melanie Dunn, said that the funding will help customers stay ‘safe and well’ during what can be one of the most difficult times of the year.
She explained: “We’re so grateful to Stoke-on-Trent City Council for their support this winter.
“When they come to us, our customers across Glow, Concrete and Revival have already been through a lot. They may have experienced an abusive relationship, lost their home or found themselves struggling to make ends meet following a hospital stay.

“No matter what they have experienced, there is often one thing in common – a financial impact. This is heightened during the cold winter months and made even harder by the rising cost of living.
“Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s winter funding will enable us to ease the pressures faced by our customers this winter, ensuring that they stay warm, safe and well.”
