As the days lengthen and sun shines down on our new premises on Blakenham Road, we are celebrating lots of exciting developments in our projects.

Our work with unaccompanied young people continues to expand, with new referrals joining our ESOL class or coming to the Weekend Project each week.  To help support this expansion, Shelton, a new youth outreach worker joined the team in March thanks to funding from Sir Walter St John Educational Charity.

Elsewhere, our women’s coffee morning is also growing significantly as we start to build relationships with new local communities. Over the past few weeks we have also been trialing integrating our cooking club with coffee morning, so that women from both projects can share a delicious meal with one another, members of our staff team and some of our wonderful volunteers – an excellent opportunity for relationship building.

And, our Visiting Project, which provides intensive support to families and individuals during the most difficult periods, has taken off over the last few months with 10 visiting relationships currently active.

We look forward to sharing more information on how our work is developing in our Spring newsletter, which will be published later this month. You can sign up for our newsletter today!
