Update on our services

Now as ever, the aim at our city centre project and Child and Family Centre is to provide the best possible support to our guests.

Due to current strict restrictions and our desire to keep our guests, families and staff safe, we’re redirecting our services to provide support and maintain relationships by phone. This means we can support our guests as they stay at home.  

City centre project

Our city centre team have a list of more than 500 people we’ll be contacting. This will help us know what the support needs of our individual guests are and how we can best help. We’ll keep you up to date with what this looks like.

To avoid having groups of people congregating and to help our guests comply with guidelines – our building will be shut and we’ll deliver groceries as required rather than giving out hot meals. We’ll be collaborating with our partners and others to ensure we provide a joined-up service across the city with no vulnerable person falling through the cracks.  

Child and Family Centre

At our Child and Family Centre, we’re also staying in touch with our families by phone and responding to their needs. We’re also uploading activities to Facebook for families to do together at home.

Please pray

Pray for our guests and families and for our project teams as they support people by phone.
