At our Day Centre we help people who need a hand to get their life moving in a positive direction. We see the person in each situation and work with each individual to find the best path for them to a brighter future. Whether someone is at risk of homelessness, in need of affordable housing, looking for support to find and use the best job search sites to gain employment or build bridges out of poverty, we’ll work with them and apply the knowledge and experience we have gained over more than ten years working with vulnerable, marginalised, and socially excluded people to assist and support them towards positive futures and fulfilling places in our communities.

What you’ll find here

The Day Centre is a light, friendly and safe environment in which our group of dedicated staff and volunteers support people in a wide range of ways. We provide food parcels and advice about local food banks and benefit claims, serve a free hot lunch five days a week, have free showers and subsidised laundry facilities.

Our free clothes store is available for anyone who needs help with appropriate clothing or needs warmer clothes for winter.

There is also an internet cafe with free web access for social connections and job searching. We have a job club which helps people with C.V writing, cover letters and gaining the necessary employment experience to find fulfilling work.

People who simply want to unwind in a safe and warm environment can use our TV lounge, or connect with others over a game of pool or table tennis. All of this makes for a lively, but warm atmosphere which is open 5 days a week.

My confidence has been boosted again. The people at Freedom encouraged me not to give up and that I would find my own place. Without the help of everyone at the Freedom Centre I don’t know what I would have done.

Making connections

We believe that a holistic, multi-agency approach is the best way to meet each person’s needs. We accept people for who they are and provide a number of different services within our Day Centre to enable positive outcomes to be reached in the least amount of time. We know that offering a number of different services and access to specialty agencies such as homelessness advice, debt advice, CAB, support for adult mental health issues and even health checks in one place makes it easier for people to make the changes they need to find physical, emotional, relational and spiritual wholeness.

Because we see the heart in each person, we also understand that all of us have the right to make our own choices, to be treated with dignity and respect, and be empowered to reach our potential. Through giving people real opportunities for change with quality support to do so, each and every person within our communities benefits as we create a more vibrant, inclusive and stronger community for all to enjoy.
