Shekinah has been in operation since 1992, and has acquired both a local and national reputation for the excellence of its work, and for the non-threatening, non-bureaucratic and supportive environment it has created for its’ clients. Shekinah is established as a company limited by guarantee and is a registered charity.
The services of Shekinah are open to all, irrespective of their race, age, religion, sexuality, gender, addictions, criminal record, ability or disability.
Shekinah provides opportunities for people who are experiencing all forms of homelessness and other challenges they maybe currently facing. A passionate and dedicated team of staff and volunteers work tirelessly ensuring that people in crisis are given a variety of opportunities to reach a secure and contented life.
Although all forms of homelessness are at the core of Shekinah’s work, there is an increasing demand from those people with other personal challenges. Working with key strategic partners, Shekinah helps people access support to help move away from the streets, address their health issues, learn new skills via our training centre and receive help in finding work with the support of the local business community.
Our Mission – We see the person first, so we can work together to enable them to be the person they want to be. To be a voice for individuals with multiple and complex needs. We will achieve this by listening to what they tell us, advocating for what they need and supporting the changes that deliver that.
Over the last 30 years Shekinah has developed a comprehensive range of services for people. Whether you want support with housing, drug and alcohol advice, benefit advice, training, education, employment or just a listening ear, please click on the link below to see the various services we offer.
