  • Need

    Need

    WE help people who are homeless or in deprivation through an Advice & Guidance Centre to get their benefit entitlements, find a home and get furniture. We give many volunteers opportunities for the unemployed to help them gain experience self confidence in the hope of getting them back to a place where they are employable again. We provide a safe vibrant hub where people feel part of a community instead of being isolated. We help to break down barriers that stop them getting the help they need

    Solution

    We run a Community Cafe where we charge for good home-made food and we run a 'Suspended Coffee' system where people pay double for their coffee so we can give one free - We also run an information & advice service alongside all session with advice on benefits, housing, budgeting, utility bills, debt. We also run a foodbank. We also give many volunteer opportunities for the unemployed to help build confidence and gain new skills
