Established for 27years in Aldershot and originally run as a soup kitchen from a church hall. We now support homeless and vulnerable adults from across North East Hampshire and The Blackwater Valley. Clients include street homeless, sofa surfers and the vulnerably housed.
The Vine Centre exists to help change the lives of the most disadvantaged members of our community, those who lack even the basics of modern living that we regularly take for granted. The services offered range from essential daily care such as hot food, laundry & shower facilities, to life changing opportunities including housing advice/support, job club and interview guidance. The centre offers a safe and familiar meeting place where clients can engage with the relevant support agencies.
The aim is to improve the wellbeing of each of our clients. Our Journey Programme offers more than 20 services delivered Monday to Friday each aimed to restore personal confidence and renew hope and opportunity to every client.
As well as all the regular services The Vine Centre also manages The Night Shelter Project, which opens Nov-Mar when the temperature drops to below freezing. This is literally a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable clients.
None of the work carried out at The Vine would be possible without the support of local businesses, community, churches and individuals who donate so generously with time, services and funding.
This year we are looking to raise awareness of the issue of homelessness as well as to promote the work of The Vine. If you would like to know more about how you can be involved email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Mary Webb on 07502543375
