Help the Friary to support those in need this Winter.

The Friary continues to support those in need into our 35th year. We are here all year round but the Winter is the time that our services are most accessed.

We provide practical and emotional support to visitors to our Drop-In Centre. Those who access the Centre see it as a safe space. Somewhere they can take time to make sense of their situation and can access support to make healthy decisions for their future.

We are here for anyone who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, whether it be to offer a shower, health support, benefits advice or to lend an ear. We are not here to judge, but hopefully to empower those we support.

The following message was sent to us recently. It's a powerful example of how important the service is to those who access it.

'I need to thank you for all the help you gave me during my homelessness. You literally saved my life. I was in very dark place and wouldn't have survived without the friary. Now I have my own flat and moving forward with my life'

The cost-of-living crisis means that more and more people are falling into homelessness. The work of the Friary is as important now as it has been at any time in our history.

A donation to our Winter appeal helps us to keep our all our services running at such an important time. We are being affected by rises in energy bills, fuel prices and the cost of food. Anything you can spare at this time will make such a difference to the lives of our visitors.

Thank you for your support.
