The award-winning Wild Goose Drop-In Centre provides free hot meals, shower facilities, clothing and toiletries four days and six nights a week for those in extreme poverty and need. The centre also serves as a hub in signposting to appropriate voluntary and council services. Alongside this we provide volunteering opportunities and also access points for agencies working with this client group.
Could you help us afford essential refurbishments to keep the Wild Goose open for the years ahead? Please read our appeal.
