For people moving on from our Food Pantries who are in need of ongoing support.
Our Next Steps project enables us to journey with clients and empower them to get more from life. Each Next Steps member is introduced to a volunteer Mentor who offers regular contact, a listening ear and signposting to any support services needed.
Members can take advantage of various training and courses such as money management, cooking on a budget and personal resilience; as well as our allotment!
We also hold regular social events including our monthly community market, where members can meet up with each other and their mentors and chat over a cup of tea.
We have partnered with Philippi Trust Counselling and Training to offer a block of counselling for anyone who wants it and we hope to foster some more partnerships which will give Next Steps members special deals, life-enhancing experiences or retail discounts.
