For many of our friends who are experiencing homelessness the Beacon Support centre will be their first experience with Barnabus.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers run 8 morning sessions a week (7:30am till 12pm, Monday - Thursday), where people can meet one of our engagement workers to begin working with our guests with support work around, benefits, homelessness assessments, access to the NHS, mental health services, recovery groups and more. We will still offer those accessing the building a shower, a pack of clothing and food. The Beacon is where we can build trust with our friends and start to build a plan for their future or assist them with problems they are having. Read how our friend was able to engage with support while at the Beacon when he had struggled elsewhere.
We believe that everybody deserves the opportunity to express themselves. That’s why we run creative, social and educational sessions at the Beacon.
Our Beacon Support Centre is open every weekday between 7:30 am till 12 pm. Please find details of our activities and services in our timetable
