Face to Face Sessions

We are so happy to be meeting people face to face once again. We are doing this in a slightly different way now.  We have organised our sessions so that those that have been referred have a 1:1 appointment with a trained volunteer. The person can select their own food, toiletries, household and baby items from our supermarket style centres. The volunteer will also spend time listening and if appropriate offer signposting and onward referrals to other sources of appropriate help if desired. We have opened two centres and hope to have more soon. We are loving this new way of working as we feel it restores some dignity and allows time for meaningful conversations. We want to be there to support people through their crisis and to enable them to better address the root cause. If you would like to know more please do contact us – click here for contact details 

We currently have 2 session running: Tuesdays is located at Belfast City Mission, off Sandy Row, BT12, between 10:30m-3:30pm. Wednesdays is located at All Saints Church, on University Street, BT7, between 10:30-4pm.

We are planning on opening a third day, based at All Saints Church, on Thursdays. Launch date in August 2022. Watch this space.
