This winter we will be extending our day centre’s opening hours each evening of the week (including weekends).
· Day Centre open every day from 9am until 9pm (last entry 7pm)
· Hot evening meal
. Access to internet
· Individual support to people who are homeless or vulnerably housed to keep safe and well during the winter and beyond
· Joint working with Canterbury City Council to help people access severe weather emergency provision (SWEP) and other housing offers
Please note– some daycentre services such as laundry/ shower access will remain 9-2pm only as standard practice, and will only be available in evenings at staff’s discretion.
To help our winter provision run smoothly we require volunteers to-
-Prepare an evening meal (served at 7pm)
-Support the staff team
-Engage in activities with clients
Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Ruth Akehurst if interested-
If you would like to help us raise funds for our winter provision please email our fundraiser Mick- firstname.lastname@example.org
Additional money means we can do even more to support our clients during this difficult time of the year.
Campaign Kent CIC Social Policy Reports- Please also find reports compiled by Kelly Napier, director at Campaign Kent (and a Catching Lives trustee) with detailed case studies of some of the situations, for example hospital discharge to street homelessness, that our clients have faced in previous winters.
