Winter All Wrapped Up

The 2020 Winter Appeal has drawn to a close and again we have been humbled by the sheer generosity of you, our supporters. Based on the volume of wrap-around services we provided in the last twelve months, we expect the demand to increase more dramatically. Your donations large and small mean we will be able to resource much needed help for those that come to us in the next few months. We will be here because of you.

Our core wrap-around services include financial mentoring for budgeting, tailored counselling and practical social work. Courses we offer include life skills and PLP our positive life-skills programme. These give people the hand-up they need to realise a hopeful future.
