Here at Faithworks we want to play our part alongside other agencies in the Homelessness Partnership BCP in turning around the homelessness and addiction situation in our area. For us that means, practically working with people to get out of their crisis, and then working alongside them to prevent getting into problems in the future.
Faithworks Arch consists of three distinct but related projects with a shared goal: to offer a structured, person-centred approach as we walk alongside those striving to overcome barriers associated with homelessness, addiction and the probation process. As they journey from an old life of crisis to a safer, healthier and a more rewarding future.
- Connection: a route out of homelessness
Connection provides a first step on the journey off the streets. At our Half-Time venue next to the YMCA and through Connection Stations at food-runs we give people the chance to tell their story, get practical help such as hot showers, phone charging, sorting out ID etc., and link them in to other key Homelessness Partnership organisations. They are places of welcome, friendship and hope.
- Recovery: Daily stability for your journey ahead
Recovery offers supported daily activities creating routine, offering both practical and emotional support, friendship, purpose, access to services and celebrating progressive outcomes. Referrals can be from individuals themselves or from external agencies.
Hosted in safe spaces and positive community environments – both key elements to enable individuals to create a solid platform to progress from at their own pace.
