Bury Drop In appeals for donations to fund dental treatment project
Following the successful launch of emergency dental treatment for the homeless, the Community Dental Services (CDS) visited Bury Drop In for its second visit on Tuesday 17th January. The mobile unit first visited the drop in on 20th December; Health Outreach NHS initially assessed people and those who were experiencing long-term dental problems were referred for emergency treatment. Due to high demand, a third session is now being arranged by the charity at a cost of £1,250. Bury Drop In is looking for donors and long-term sponsors to finance the project, if you would be interested in supporting this project, please get in touch by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the webpage www.burydropin.org/donate.

“Homeless and vulnerable people can find it impossible to get help. Even if we refer to 111, or A&E, there are still barriers to access and being able to attend.
