Words by Andy Mortimer, communications coordinator at Broadway Homelessness and Support
- Our blog site is moving!
So here we are. After 82 blogs, 11,875 views and almost 15 months of blogging, it’s over. Well sort of.
From tomorrow (1 April 2014), Broadway will merge with fellow homelessness charity St Mungo’s to form St Mungo’s Broadway.
As a merged charity, we will provide a bed and support to more than 2,500 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to prevent homelessness, helping about 25,000 people a year.
We will support men and women through more than 200 projects including emergency, hostel and supportive housing projects, advice services, specialist physical health, mental health and skills and work services.
And as part of this merger, we will also have a new website – already live at www.mungosbroadway.org.uk – and, thanks to the funky technology already available on over there, a new blogging arena: http://blog.mungosbroadway.org.uk
Devotees of our page, however, need not worry. Our blogs will still remain live here; a few will even follow us over to the new site. There will also be a host of new blogs for you to view from our colleagues over at St Mungo’s. We intend to keep uploading quality content for you to read in the weeks and months ahead so we hope you’ll be happy to join us and enjoy the best of St Mungo’s Broadway.
I have to admit, however, that I’m going to miss this ol’ site a little. Many a night have I sat here, altering graphics and proofing blogs and I know the whole team at Broadway have been so grateful for all the support we’ve had from our readers. I can only hope that will continue.
So with a final click of the ‘Publish’ button we say “goodbye” to BroadwayBlogsUK and “hello” at last to http://blog.mungosbroadway.org.uk (be sure to save us in your bookmarks and check out our first blog coming live tomorrow morning)!
