In 2019 we provided 1:1 support to 1,034 local people…
We had over 10,000 visits to our Community Café!
We served 7,250 meals, 572 of which were given for free, to the homeless and to families in financial crisis during school holidays. We issued 221 vouchers for people in need to access the local food larder.
We supported 395 people with 1:1 advice, support and counselling at the Café, 64 of whom were homeless.
We helped people facing issues including homelessness, housing, benefits, budgeting, unemployment, addiction, mental health and domestic abuse.
“I can’t begin to explain how much your help meant to me and my daughter at a time when we were really struggling. Thank you very much for all the lovely food you sent us. It was amazing, and such a blessing.”
We supported 10 families through the Child Contact Centre, enabling 14 children to spend quality time with the parent that they no longer live with.
“This centre has been brilliant. You have always been there to talk to. The girls love coming. If it wasn’t for centres like this, so many children would have nowhere to go.”
