  • A place to learn new skills and gain practical work experience
  • IT suite, accessible to all
  • Job club
  • Health and wellbeing education

  • Repaint Scheme.

Through these activities;

  • We are a lifeline for many people in need of food, clothing, dignity and a sense of belonging.
  • We provide social interaction and activities that improve the health and wellbeing of individuals.
  • We increase people’s ability to participate in the wider community.
  • We increase the quality of life for people on a low income.

Our values are to remain people centred, to accept people as they are and to offer a place of safety, offer practical support and build relationships.  We look to create a sustainable organisation and to be environmentally friendly.
