Our team of therapeutic mentors, qualified psychological first aiders and jolly good eggs are available to give support in the aftermath of a school, organization or local tragedy or incident. We will offer support, a listening ear and tea and toast in the horsebox. Our partnership with the Trauma Recovery Centre means we are able to connect people to therapists, who are trained to provide long term recovery from crisis.
We know that receiving presents is a rare occurrence for many of the neediest or loneliest people in our communities. We also know that a real difference can be made to individuals or families who receive for themselves, or who are resourced to give to their loved ones. We have given thousands of presents over the years to families via social workers and agencies, restoring the dignity of parents who have something to give to their children. Families and individuals can visit the Cupboard for a unique experience where they will be able to receive gifts from our presents cupboard, enjoy a hot drink and a chat and hopefully leave feeling valued and loved!
We offer an emergency response team to critical or dangerous practical needs. We regularly give practical help to people in their homes, having renovated houses, painted homes, made over gardens and everything in between! Our team will arrive on the response unit, fully equipped and ready to take on practical projects!
We give needy families clothes and toys and other necessary items all year round. Over the last 15 years, we’ve given hundreds of baby clothes and equipment bundles to expectant mums, as well as beautiful selected boxes of clothes for children and adults. We’re often asked by agencies and social workers to help provide interview or work clothes. We travel to venues where visitors can select what they need from our clothes and toy store on the unit, whilst enjoying a drink and a chat.
''A huge thank you for all you've done in the local community...a hugely impressive number of hours that really has and does make a huge difference, helping people directly.'' Ben Howlett, MP of Bath
