Harvest Festival!

Harvest Festival! The number of people that we are supporting continues to grow and the generosity of our community is more important than ever this year. Our supplies are gradually reducing and Harvest festival is a key point in the year to replenish our stock room so we wish to thank all of our supporters.

WHAT IS ACE OF CLUBS?

Ace of Clubs is a family-like community providing transformative support for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised in our area.

At our centre on St Alphonsus Road we provide for the immediate needs of those in desperate circumstances with safe shelter, food, warmth, clothing, laundry and showers.

From this welcoming start, and through friendly and genuine care, we seek to build relationship with people.
The team at Ace of Clubs is skilled and focused in linking people in with a wide range of services including accommodation, welfare, rehab, training, healthcare and many others.

Ace of Clubs is a place where those who are alone can find acceptance, a sense of belonging and renewed purpose to see their lives restored.

A few of the highlights from last year were that we provided over 20,000 meals, welcomed over 1000 people through the door,  helped over 100 people off the streets and into accommodation and supported 36 people into rehabilitation from addiction.

At the moment we are helping between 80 and 100 people per day. The number of people coming to us for help increases year on year due to the recession, benefits changes  and a severe increase in homelessness. Government cuts to public services means that more  people than ever  now depend on Ace of Clubs for support.
