Supporting a city centre vendor

Supporting a city centre vendor - 03/12/2021

Penka is a Big Issue North vendor in the city centre. PCSO Cundy first met her a while ago whilst on joint patrols with an Immigration worker. Penka was extremely upset at the time, and with the help of an interpreter it was established she was homeless and needed some assistance. 

PSCO Cundy referred her in to the relevant services which included housing. This week she recognised PCSO Cundy in the city centre and approached her.  She thanked her for her assistance as she is now in a much better position as a result of the intervention and support.  

Penka was really happy to see PCSO Cundy again, and gladly had her picture taken with the Immigration worker.
