Guildford Action is an independent registered charity, which has been working within the local community for over 30 years helping homeless Individuals as well as isolated families. Our mission is to ‘Enhance the lives of all those we come into contact with’. We have seen a massive increase in numbers of those accessing the projects over the past year due to economic climate and social welfare reforms. The projects are:

 

  • The Guildford Action Drop-in Centre that supports those who are homeless, have been homeless or those on a low income, through meeting basic need as well as group work. We offer showers, access to primary healthcare, clothing, food alongside non-judgemental advice and advocacy within the safe warm environment of the centre.
  • The GAF (Guildford Action for Families) support service, which supports isolated families with all issues involving the bringing up of children. We aim to maximise the potential of every child and family, we come into contact with. The GAF Team work with families in their own homes through outreach. Also drop-in sessions within the families own communities to increase confidence and self esteem.
  •  

Issues faced by those we support may include debt, housing, mental health challenges, isolation, relationship breakdown, domestic abuse, parenting skills, employment and substance misuse.
