Support and housing service for adults in Somerset who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and also have a mix of mental health needs, drug and alcohol problems, behavioural issues, debt or have been involved in the criminal justice system. Our clients have complex needs and often find it extremely hard to sustain positive change in their lives. We believe we have a responsibility to make sure our service, and the system as a whole, does all it can to reverse this experience. Our service is primarily about helping people to live fulfilling lives in their own communities, retain their tenancy and reduce repeated homelessness.
Please visit the website below for more information & to make contact.
Based at a beautiful market garden on the outskirts of Frome, we offer a supportive group space for adults to participate in a range of activities:
Growing edible produce, natural crafts, practical skills, also mindfulness & creative exercises.
Our site is within walking distance of Frome’s town centre, and there is limited parking. Unfortunately the terrain is not wheel-chair friendly and reasonable mobility is required to attend. We provide all the tools and materials you need, plus tea & biscuits.
It’s free to join us! Just bring a packed lunch, outdoor clothes, boots and waterproofs!
Come & sit around our campfire drinking tea, listening to birdsong & relaxing!
