Ace of Clubs is a family-like community providing transformative support for homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised people 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 relationships with people.
The team at Ace of Clubs is skilled and focused on 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 34,000 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 120 and 180 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. In addition, government cuts to public services mean that more people than ever now depend on Ace of Clubs for support.
