As Christmas time draws nearer, we’re reflecting on 2022 and the hard work of our team. We have a lovely team of volunteers who work tirelessly to cook hot meals in our kitchen, keep the centre clean and tidy and help and support our homeless clients 365 days a year. After four years of volunteering...
Welcome to the August newsletter for Catching Lives. With the recent hot weather, we continued our severe weather provision (SWEP) where possible to ensure our clients can stay out of the sun later into the afternoon and thank you to anyone that donated the items we requested in our last newsletter.

On 14th June 2022, the Government anounced that it will end Friday prison releases to prevent the race against the clock that is faced by many prisoners released on a Friday. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/end-to-friday-releases-to-cut-crime-and-make-streets-safer We are delighted to hear about this announcement as many of our clients have struggled with this issue for years. They are released...
Our bookshop in Canterbury occupies one of the most photographed buildings in Canterbury, unusual because of its crooked appearance, it is thought to have inspired Charles Dickens’ novel, David Copperfield. The large windows are almost unheard of in this age of building due to the window tax that came in during the late 1600’s, however...
Catching Lives has kindly been offered a piece of farmland for the next five years, which will be used to grow produce for our kitchen at the Catching Lives Open Centre, where our team of volunteers cook meals for the homeless and vulnerably housed of Canterbury and East Kent on a daily basis.  We will...
It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the sudden passing of our dear friend and colleague, James Duff.
