We are excited to announce that our team in Glasgow has grown again! Over the past 5 months we have gone from 3.97FTE to 6.76FTE, an extra 104 hours per week taking us to 253.5 hours per week in total! In terms of numbers of employees, we have moved from 9 to 12 employees. This is a significant increase and easily our largest staff increase to date!
We currently have 3 full-time staff members: Ricky McAddock (Project Director), Andrew Pont
(Business Manager) and Craig Halkett (Project Coordinator) and 9 part-
time staff which includes: Operations Manager, Men’s and Women’s Support Workers, Outreach Worker, Fundraiser, Community Fundraising and Communications Officer, Volunteer Coordinator, Housing Support Coordinator and a Business Support Officer. We also have around 50 active volunteers who are involved in a variety of our services both in our Saturday evening outreach cafe and throughout the week. We have built up a fantastic team, and we are especially thankful to our volunteers, as without them, we would not be able to give the level of support we do.
With the increase in our staff team we believe that this is going to have a significant impact on the amount of people we reach and support, as well as improving on the current level of vital support we are able to offer. Since April 2018 we have referred 8 people into a Christian rehab program, which has already surpassed the most we have referred in one year (previously 7) and we are only a third of the way into our year. We are connecting with the most people on the streets, in groups, 1-2-1, and expect this to increase across all areas of the work as we see an increase in high quality staff and volunteers.
