Hope Community Services is a step closer to the move-on accommodation for those in crisis after a £2,000 donatation from St Anne’s Church.
The new facility on Queen Street, right in the centre of town will be a 6 bed shared property. The residents will carry on receiving support from HOPE’s staff team, to ensure that individuals continue to work through the challenges that got them to their point of crisis.
CEO of Hope Alan Diggles said: “It’s wonderful that St Anne’s Church feel able to contribute to this new service.
“Their support will help us to get the project finished, with the first residents moving into their own place before the year end.”
Hope’s mission is to promote social inclusion, tackle disadvantage,homelessness and the causes of homelessness, and ensure there are pathways for positive lifestyle choices, for those who are outside of mainstream services.
Reverend Simon Cash of St Anne’s Church said: “Helping those in need is close to the hearts of our parishioner’s.
“When they heard of the plight of those from within the heart of our community, who would otherwise be without a home this Christmas, they felt compelled to make a difference.”
