Happy New Year from Bens Centre!

16th January 2018

Bens Centre are holding a party for staff and clients to mark 21 years anniversary on 25th January.

Bens hope to continue their work helping the most vulnerable for the next 21 years! Situated in North Church St, Ben's is the only 'damp centre' in Sheffield city centre- open to men and women under the influence of alcohol, but needing to get off the streets. The team of staff and volunteers offer advice on housing issues, often liaising between the client and the local services; access to medical services and therapy for substance misuse; hot food and a listening ear. Not all of Ben's clients make it to the centre, and the aim is to extend the outreach programme, when food and warm clothing are taken to rough sleepers. Any extra funding would make a huge difference to the people on the streets and the work of Ben's, and we are keen to speak to local businesses about our work and ongoing projects.
