Finalist in the Community Category of the Year Award
Catching Lives is a small, independent charity that supports local homeless populations of rough sleeper and vulnerably-housed individuals. These are people who, for various reasons, fall through the gaps in society and feel they have nowhere else to turn. Their open centre offers immediate respite in the form of hot meals, showers, laundry facilities, clothes bank and care-of address. They work with their clients on an individual basis to help them resolve issues, access accommodation and find the motivation to take steps towards personal recovery and independent living.
