Welcome Project

1 hlp The Welcome Centre

The Welcome Project provides many services to men and women who are homeless from its purpose built Day Centre in Ilford. The project provides information, advice and guidance on a range of issues associated with homelessness; practical support; support with entering the job market; a nurse led clinic; counselling; alternative therapies and a chiropody clinic.
Many people are helped through the work of the project and above is a short film made through the Media Trust of how the Project supported a young man called Kieran to get his life back together.
