The Vine Centre has been in existence since 1987 and developed from its humble beginnings as a soup kitchen to an organisation which now provides a broad range of services to the most disadvantaged members of our community (aged 18+). These services are delivered Mon-Fri addressing the immediate physical & mental health needs of our clients, as well as their longer term needs.
Since Feb 2017 there have been many new developments here at The Vine Centre, we have grown and developed, you could say The Vine has new branches. Our aim remains to help transform the lives of the vulnerable and most socially isolated members of the local community. This includes the homeless, but also so many other people who would otherwise not have anywhere to turn.
The Vine Centre is a place for the vulnerable
From the elderly lady whose only remaining social interaction is at our Silvers Group
The isolated mother with an autistic child who comes to Spectrum for support
The long term unemployed, ground down by failed applications who come to Monday Job Club for fresh help and support
The young girl with learning disabilities who comes for counselling
The homeless gentleman with no-one to turn to, who comes for help with finances and housing advice.
The socially isolated woman with mental health problems who delights in painting at our Art therapy class
The young man gaining confidence in the workplace, interacting with others as part of “My Catering Career”
The Vine is a haven; helping, supporting, enabling and empowering our local community, because everybody should have somebody to turn to.
