Our Enablement Centre services are open to all rough sleepers. In addition, it may also be the place for you if you have recently moved into hostel or other accommodation, or are at risk of homelessness, and feel you might benefit from support.
All service users are welcome to join us to participate in activities every weekday. We offer fun informal activities as well as accredited courses and advice about training and employment. Sessions are delivered in conjunction with partner agencies including Crisis Skylight, Collective Encounters and the Social Partnership. After 5pm activity sessions will be specifically for rough sleepers and street drinkers.
Please see our monthly timetable for further details of what’s on.
Open Access Drop In is available for rough sleepers only. You are welcome to join us for breakfast as well as access to hot showers, laundry facilities and a change of clothes. One to one support is available to help you address accommodation problems and other issues.
A GP surgery is available at the centre on Tuesday mornings for anyone who is rough sleeping and not yet registered with a GP.
On Wednesday mornings, our Community Pharmacist is on hand at the centre for anyone with questions or concerns about medications they are using, including matters such as interaction of medication with drugs/ alcohol.
