VULNERABLE people with nowhere to go are being given a safe space to ‘relax’.

Blue Triangle Housing Association has been on the receiving end of a donation from its local DFS Ayr store, giving the people it supports access to a renovated space for rest and relaxation.

The donation came following an approach from Blue Triangle project worker, Jane Bruhn. Jane said: “A lot of our residents come to us with nothing but the clothing on their backs. When people are faced with such adversity, we want to do what we can to give them a safe, comfortable space to feel at home. Having that space can make such a difference to people who are looking for support to get back on their feet.”

Blue Triangle Housing Association is a Registered Social Landlord and Charity which provides both emergency and supported accommodation to those recently made homeless, with a mission to assist vulnerable people to achieve better lives.

Staff and service users recently received a donation of a chaise end sofa for their lounge area, from their local DFS store.

Jane added: “I’m so grateful for the kindness and generosity shown by DFS. We were so delighted when we received this fabulous and thoughtful donation. The lounge looks great now and creates such a lovely, warm space, for us to support the service users. It might not seem like a lot to some but having a clean, comfortable, homely space can ease the worry and stress and make it easier for the people we support to adjust.”

The donation comes as part of DFS’ wider ‘50 Acts of Comfort’ initiative which aims to bring comfort to 50 projects, charities or individuals across the country.
