On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings we host a Community Club which is open to anyone as a supportive space to find connection. Our friendly volunteers run a free cafe and provide a listening ear. We have social activities and provide free services such as hairdressing/barbers, mobile GP surgeries, access to well-being therapists and social prescribers. People pop in for a cup of tea and stay for so much more.
We also make Unity Park Station available at different times of the week for partner organisations to use our facilities so that together we can provide a hub of support for people in need in Milton Keynes.
Could you give £3 or £5 a month?
Small, regular donations help us to provide consistent welfare support for rough sleepers throughout the year. If you are able to donate the cost of a nice coffee or a lunch once a month to help the homeless this would be an impactful way to support our work. Thank you.
