What’s happening:

Man Shed—a place for men to get their hands dirty with DIY projects and tinkering.  (various days, times)

Gardening –  DCO have been working all year cutting grass and gardening then composting the waste. We have now grown beans, mint and flowers in the recycled pots and upcycled compost. For sharing in the community. (See picture bottom right below)

Writing Club — We’ve partnered with Creative Scene to run a creative writing course at the Refuge.

Bible Studies— We hold regular bible studies  for those interested.

*** Please note most activities at the Refuge are currently not running due to to the COVID-19 pandemic. ***

And in the pipeline…

  • A day drop in centre where those in need can access the immediate help and support they need. 
  • Emergency cold weather accommodation for up to 6 men – we hope to launch this in winter 2020
  • 4 flats providing supported living accommodation for men in a drug and alcohol free space.
