Society of St. James at work:
In 1972, the Society of St James was a group of volunteers from a collection of churches who opened up a church hall to accommodate 11 homeless men. Many of the men they worked with in those early days were struggling with heavy drinking and the team realised very quickly that offering shelter was just the first step in helping people get back on their feet.
Although the organisation and the services Society of St. James provides has changed in the last 45 years, their ethos remains the same. They are still responsive to the ever-changing challenges facing vulnerable people; they still believe that people can change their lives for the better with the right help, and we still believe that everyone deserves not just a second or third chance, but as many as it takes to enable them to change their lives for the better.
