Preston-based digital agency 3manfactory has been working on a new website for the charity as part of the 50th anniversary year.
Creative director Tom Stables spent a day with the team at Foxton to see what they do.
Tom said: “Recently, as part of the process to develop their new website, I was invited to shadow The Foxton Centre to capture candid images of the people they help and just a fraction of the incredible work they do.
“As a team we all knew of The Foxton Centre; we knew of the kinds of services they provide to people in Preston but it was only when shadowing them that the compassion and care with which they undertake this mission became truly apparent.
“Moreover, framing the plight of homelessness in Preston through a lens really brought the scale of the issue to the fore. Being able to work with The Foxton Centre has been enlightening, often shocking and always inspirational.
“Everyone included in the pictures was aware of what we were doing and why, giving their full consent.”
