We provide a signposting service to relevant agencies –official and voluntary.
We offer the free use of our telephone to UK landline numbers.
We maintain a small stock of food, clothing and bedding for those in need.
We provide cooking and shower facilities for those who do not necessarily have regular access to such things themselves.
We can often provide help with housing issues.
