Let’s Engage Programme

Let’s Engage Programme

After listening to the issues and challenges people living on the streets and hostels face, we developed a meaningful activity programme for rough sleepers and people with experience of street homelessness. The programme runs 5 evenings a week with a drop in on Saturday’s and activities like fishing and football in the warmer months. Since funding began, we have engaged over 80 current or former rough sleepers and more than 100 people in total.

Our aim is to reduce isolation and give people a safe environment on the evenings where they can engage in meaningful activity and build a positive peer network. Once people move into accommodation they can continue to engage with the sessions and be part of the groups.
