We are delighted to announce the official launch event for Bournemouth’s HealthBus – a pioneering service offering lifesaving treatment to the people sleeping rough in Bournemouth and a key part of the mission at St Stephen’s Church.
Homelessness is increasingly prevalent in Bournemouth, more so now than ever before – with a 300% increase in rough sleepers over the last eight years.
The HealthBus GP Service was launched in December 2016 and offers easily accessible healthcare for people sleeping rough in Bournemouth. This pioneering service has been described as both invaluable and life-saving, as it enables preventative healthcare at the point of need.
With just one weekly surgery, The HealthBus has seen up to 200 patients each year. For many it has been their first contact with healthcare in months, years and sometimes even decades.
To kickstart our fundraising project to build and support The HealthBus, we’d love you to join us for an evening of drinks, canapes, live music, a raffle and networking. Simply, we want to bring together the heart of the Bournemouth community for such a worthy and invaluable cause!
