Our Drop-in is open

This Friday’s drop-in (22nd January 2021), we are offering a combination of sit-in meals (for rough sleepers and homeless) and takeaways (for guests that are in accommodation/housing).

Could you become a RESTART mentor?

We are expanding and looking for volunteers to become mentors (who will be able to support guests through important stages of our programme, in overcoming challenges and in reaching their full potential). Applications are now open!! – and close on 31 January 2021.
