'HUB FOR THE HOMELESS' APPEAL
Target reached - but we are still looking for support
We are delighted to say that our recent Spacehive appeal has now exceeded its target, which means the pledged funds will now be made available to us. We're immensely grateful to everyone who has helped us raise £7500 in just a couple of months!
However, there are still quite a few items of furniture and equipment we need to buy or acquire in order to kit out the new premises. One requirement in particular is to raise an additional £281 to buy a lockable storage cabinet for the laptops for our training room.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
You can still pledge money to our appeal: simply visit our Spacehive page and decide how much you'd like to pledge.
We always welcome offers for volunteering help - see our volunteering page for details. At the moment our greatest need is for multilingual speakers, especially anyone who speaks Polish or Romanian, to help on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
The Upper Room (TUR) works with various disadvantaged groups including homeless, vulnerable people and ex-offenders, helping them to improve their lives and become productive members of society. The UR4Driving project aims to empower ex-offenders with the motivation and skills to gain sustainable employment and avoid re-offending. The Project Coordinator will contribute to the smooth running of the UR4Driving project, carrying out administration tasks and dealing empathically with service-users.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 5PM WEDNESDAY 7TH AUGUST 2019
