What do we do
WCA consists of 4 Projects:
1) Windsor Homeless Project – for the vulnerable and homeless. Offering a day centre for breakfast and lunch; healthcare e.g. access to visiting GP/nurse, chiropodist, hairdresser; professional advisers for mental health, addictions, etc; life re-building advice from probation services; as well as housing & tenancy advice, on-line skills, and jobs advice.
You can help support Windsor Homeless Project by making a one-off donation or regular donations as described here.
2) Street Angels – provide care and safety to primarily young adults and rough sleepers at risk at night requiring medical care, shelter, and other support.
3) FoodShare – provides non-perishable foods to individuals and families who are hungry due to insufficient money; most have homes and many are working.
4) More Than a Shelter – provides overnight accommodation and meals to rough sleepers during the 3 coldest months of the year January to March.
New Home for Our Projects!
We are really happy to announce that WCA has secured accommodation which will be available for the use of all its projects. In the not too distant future, we will be able to use the Holy Trinity Parish Rooms in Alma Road, (currently known as the Alma Road Social Club). The PCC of Holy Trinity Church have generously agreed to lease us the rooms, which will enable further improved communication and co-operation between Windsor Homeless Project, Street Angels, Foodshare and More than a Shelter, and mean we can expand the support we offer to our guests.
Many thanks to Jeremy Crame, one of our trustees, who took the lead in negotiations on this. He will project manage the move, and the process of adapting the building to our needs.
We are really grateful for the support of Rev Canon Sally Lodge and team, who have enabled this to happen.
We are so excited about this, as it is something we have dreamed of for years! Stay tuned for all the ways you can get involved!
Once again, we would like to thank everyone who supports us in different ways for all that you do. Those who are vulnerable in our community need our help even more in these difficult times.
