Welcome Organisation Partnership
We partner with a local housing and homelessness charity to provide care and support for some of the most vulenrable in Belfast.
The Welcome Organisation aims to narrow the divide between people with and people without homes and to stabilise people’s lives.
The shelter is open from 10am to 9pm daily, providing hot meals, showers, clean clothes and a place to hang out for those in our city who are homeless. The staff there work tirelessly to serve some of the most vulnerable in our city and through sending in teams to clean the shelter on a weekly basis we get to serve them as they serve others.
We also run a once a week football programme with some of the services users, giving the chance to develop relationships, enjoy life together and encourage the gifts and talents in every individual. Other programmes have included one off parties, flat cleans, Christmas collections, women’s days and a creative writing project.
In everything we do we want to honour the work of those who serve there, celebrate the lives of the service users and see dignity and hope restored.
