St Anne's Trust

Founded 2003

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to offer the disadvantaged in our community - in particular homeless and lonely people - a friendly shelter from the streets with hot meals and help with problems.

    Our Day Centre is open 10am to 1pm Monday to Friday all year round, except public holidays. Our work is simple and direct. Much is in the form of relief. We provide food to nourish the body, clothing for warmth and protection, and a safe environment in which to find companionship and ward off isolation or depression.

    But relief by itself is never enough. We work to help individuals improve their lives and we seek to challenge poverty and our perceptions of poverty in all its manifestations.

    We offer an open door admissions policy: anyone is welcome to use the centre, as long as they behave themselves and observe a few common sense rules. And we are blessed with a pool of voluntary helpers, ordinary people who give freely of their time and without whom the centre could not function.

    A light breakfast is available from 10am and a hot 3 course lunch is served at noon.

    We aim to work for and with individuals in need, providing practical and emotional support and encouraging a sense of personal worth.

    We respect the dignity and uniqueness of every individual, firmly based on the teachings of Christ, by promoting the gospel values of human dignity, justice and compassion especially among those most in need in our society, regardless of ethnic, social and religious background.
