Safe Haven have been offering the vulnerable and those in need a safe space, food and drink, in Rotherham Town Centre for over 5 years.
Having started as a project at Talbot Lane Methodist Church, Safe Haven, along with partner organisation RIVO, have moved into premises on College Street (opposite HSBC Bank) in Rotherham Town Centre.
With the support of funders, local businesses and the hard work of volunteers the premises are been transformed to provide a welcoming safe space for those in need.
Rotherham Central Community Hub aims to be more than just an evening venue which provides hot food and drinks to those who need it, their vision is for the Hub to be a community space during the day, offering community groups and organizations meeting space and somewhere to come together at a central venue.
Rotherham Community Central Hub is currently only offering food on Wednesday evenings due to the current coronavirus outbreak but, as soon as circumstances allow, will be aiming to offer the service 5 evenings a week.
Safe Haven is currently in need of volunteers and trustees, if you or someone you know could help and would like more information please contact Barrie Thomas via email or 07523 124995
