We want to save lives.
We have identified a way to address the emotional damage that the homeless face in order to build their self-worth which we are confident will lead them to being receptive to the help that’s available.
By having a Wellbeing Centre, as a charity we believe we have the tolerance and the relationship to educate and mentor hard-to-reach rough sleepers and lead them to a positive mental state.
The Wellbeing Centre will provide an opportunity for the homeless to wash, receive food, education, mentorship and access to the provision they need to get off the streets. It will be there to capture new rough sleepers before they enter the toxic cycle and relieve the long-term individuals from the cycle.
The Wellbeing Centre will also provide ongoing support after a rough sleeper has been placed into accommodation to ensure that they stay there. Currently many return to the streets for the connections that they build with other rough sleepers, but by having a centre run by an already trusted source, they have the opportunity to connect with peers in a non-toxic environment all while receiving training to help them overcome their addictions, receive important life skills and employability skills so that they can eventually become independent and contributing members of the community.
We will connect with local employers to arrange training packages that provide real opportunities for those who overcome homelessness and we will remain a point of support even when they enter into the job market.
We have a clear vision, but we need your help.
