Location

Situation

Broken lives as a result of homelessness has been a major problem in Bournemouth area over the last twenty years. Need is demonstrated by the fact that we a constantly operate to full capacity. Local Rough Sleeper Street Counts are consistantly in double figures with a notable need for hostel / supported accommodation and homeless services. Soup kitchens, with which three of our directors have considerable experience, have been crowded throughout this period.

Solution

By providing respect, care and support. for our residents. We aim to restore self esteem, assist with life skills, access further education where necessary, facilitate training for employment to enable them to return to play useful roles in the community.
