Our Services

The groups we work with have increased over the years now covering refugees/asylum seekers, lone parents, people who have married into the UK and have come over as a spouse, young offenders, ex-substance users, BME community and domestic violence victims. We have always tried to create an open-door policy for all and have always focused on eliminating multiple barriers and help individuals cope with high levels of deprivation and unemployment in the area.
