Let’s Engage Programme

Let’s Engage Programme

After listening to the issues and challenges people sleeping rough face we developed a meaningful activity programme for people with experience of homelessness. The programme runs 5 days a week with a drop in on Saturday’s and activities like fishing and football in the warmer months.

Our aim is to reduce social isolation and give people a safe environment where they can engage in meaningful activity and build a positive peer network. Once people move into accommodation they can continue to engage with the sessions and be part of the groups.

For Recovery month we put on an exhibition that included artwork from the evening groups alongside established artists and service users from the recovery service

We wanted the exhibition to show that even when people are sleeping rough and in early stages of recovery, they have skills, talents and strengths.
