Welfare Services at St Wilfrid's

A warm welcome awaits you from all the Welfare Team at St. Wilfrid's Centre. We are (from left to right): Rachel, Pamela, Diane, Angela, Louise, and Steve.

 Welfare Team August 2015

The welfare team at St Wilfrid’s Centre aim to help anyone that comes here. Some people who come need basic services, such as a meal or help with finding accommodation for that day, but others want somewhere safe to come regularly, meet up with people and join in activities.   

Some clients turn up at the door and others are referred from agencies around the city.

All who come to St Wilfrid’s will be seen by one of the welfare team to provide the best support we can with the problems they have.  We do this by respectfully listening to each client in a private, safe place and help them work towards a solution. 


We can support clients to liaise with other agencies or advise them on which agencies are best placed to help with their particular problem. We aim to improve clients’ wellbeing and to encourage independence.

We offer lots of social activities and games that give clients the chance to take part and interact with others. This helps those that come here build their self confidence, feel accepted and valued.

We are a ‘dry’ centre and clients are asked to sign up to our drugs and alcohol policy.

We are open 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday.
