Four times a week a cooked meal is available at Southbroom Centre, Victoria Road for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Between 15 – 30 guests sign in each session. As well as the meal, there are hot and cold drinks available. Guests can have a shower and ask for laundry tickets that pay for visits to the local laundrette. There are clothes and shoes, toiletries, a mobile phone to use and food donations that can be taken away.
We offer one-to-one support and supportive conversation during our sessions with trained Support Workers. Many useful conversations start and arrangements can be made that will help deal with a variety of issues including:
- housing and tenancy support
- financial struggles
- access to mental and physical health services
- access to addiction support
- lots more!
As well as food and support, we also offer activities and services from time-to-time.
We have had foot care services and hairdressers attend; and once a month we hold craft and skill building sessions.
Sometimes we have games available such as table football or pool.
We also have a selection of board games and the occasional quiz!
