Good Shepherd is a food and support service which serves hot meals to many individuals who are struggling in life. Whilst meals are served we deliver advice and information drop ins, support to access benefits, support to gain accommodation and referrals to external agencies.
Registered Charity in England and Wales (1165909)
We provide support and guidance to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in the community. Our main client groups are rough sleepers, people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, families with support needs, people with multiple complex needs, destitute asylum seekers and people with no recourse to public funds. We offer individuals a postal address and rough sleeper’s a shower and laundry facilities as well as emergency clothing, support services and pastoral care.
Good Shepherd wants its service users to gain opportunities to use and develop their strengths and skills, develop positive peer networks, improve their health and wellbeing and connect with their communities. We will achieve this by facilitating and delivering meaningful activities, offering structured volunteering and mentoring opportunities and supporting people to engage in volunteering, mentoring, education, training and employment.
”My homelessness goes back a long time, I was involved in drugs and went through the hostel system and then back to living on the street. I became suicidal. I met Paul from the Good Shepherd who helped me get into accommodation. It’s all about relationships – finding the right people who can help
For the first time in my life there was somebody prepared to really listen to what I had to say. Without that support I would not be the person I am today or the person I will become in the future.
