New premises and community centre

Bikur Cholim has "outgrown" its current premises and we have now identified new premises which will not only increase the capacity of the organisation but will increase the services we are able to provide. This will include a mental health clinic and St Joseph Hospice outreach clinic.

Situation

Bikur Cholim current premises are severely overcrowded . Our mental health service is located at several sattelite locations and we are unable to reach out to all the people who require our support and services. There is also a need for peer support groups and training sessions which we are unable to meet due to space constraints. We also find it challenging to arrange private meetings as our conference room is so heavily used.

Solution

The location will tackle this by: - increasing the work space and improving confidentiality for office staff and support workers - providing venue for peer support groups - providing suitable mental health treatment rooms -providing suitable premises for St Joseph Hospice Outreach Clinic - increasing training opportunities for staff and carers - internet cafe for older people and those who require support in accessing advice and information
