Share Day Centre

The SHARE Day Centre

The SHARE day centre is open to our friends who are homeless for hot meals, clothes and toiletries.  It is also a place that offers support, activities, and help to meet people’s specific needs.

The SHARE team offer daily basic aid, but also help to empower people to positively move their lives forwards and engage with rebuilding their lives, or even volunteer on the Share Team themselves.

We signpost people to services, and continue to assist and support people during their transition into accommodation and then into employment.  We are looking for volunteers to help continue to deliver our service.
