Somewhere to Go to undertake building works thanks to government grant

Somewhere To Go, a charity that helps Weston's homeless and vulnerable adult community is to soon start building works in its day centre thanks to a grant from the Night Shelter Transformation Fund.


The grant will allow the charity, which from its launch in 1999 has grown to host not only a day centre, but charity shop and community hub, to undertake a range of buildings works that will improve the standard of facilities on offer to some of Weston's most vulnerable adults.



The building works will include a new stairlift to make accessibiity to the first floor day centre more practical for the elderly and disabled, as well as works to the roof and new windows along with internal structural alterations.


The grant has also enabled the charity to recruit a new role of senior support worker who will work more closely with clients to help them reach their full potential and explore routes into education, training and employment.


Ellie Lloyd, a trustee at Somewhere To Go said "With the current housing and cost of living crisis the upcoming building works will allow us to increase our provisions and adapt to the changing needs of the community. Our service, supporting the most marginalised and vulnerable adults within North Somerset, will be able to operate more effectively with the updating and expansion of our service in order to be able to best support those who need it"
