PSW Volunteer at Whitechapel Mission

PSW staff teamed up with BNY Mellon to cook a Traditional English Breakfast for the Eastends Homeless at Christmas.

Each member of the team lent their hand to each role throughout the morning which included serving teas and coffees, cooking eggs, bacon, sausages, beans and mushrooms as well as washing up and mopping the floor, etc.

The team worked like a well oiled machine under the leadership of Jessica and with everyone working to their strengths. It must be said that Rob exceeded expectations and blew everyone away with his cooking skills which soon resulted in him being dubbed ‘Egg Man’ due to his natural aptitude for frying eggs to order. Whether it be sunny side up, over easy or over medium, Rob had it covered.

The day started at 5am in Whitechapel, East London and there was no rest until 12.30pm by which time everyone had been fed and the kitchen was gleaming.

The staff and volunteers at the Whitechapel Mission provide an invaluable service for what is an overwhelming demand. They have been serving the homeless and marginalised for 143 years – including a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs. If you are interested in learning more about what the Mission does you can find everything you need on their website.

PSW have pledged to return next Christmas which is the Missions busiest time of year.

What our Clients think…

We regularly seek client feedback as part of our Quality Management procedures and here are some recent comments.

" We were very satisfied with the overall services of PSW on this sheltered scheme, as they demonstrated their experience in this type of scheme, and understood our needs. PSW went over and above at various stages of the project, and particularly during handover and resident occupation."
" Very good attention to detail and contract administration. A joy to work with."
