Our Drop-In Centre is a safe, clean, warm, non-threatening and relaxing meeting point for the local community. Low-cost counselling is available for a wide range of issues.

Our Senior Services programme supports the elderly by linking them with volunteers who will regularly visit and help connect them to various activities or services. 'Awesome Seniors' is our social group for seniors.
