Hello Everyone

How is everyone doing? As I write this the sun is out, the rain has stopped, and it looks like it is going to be a great day.

Do you ever wake up and feel in a good mood and glad to be alive?  That is me today, I knew I was coming into the centre to work, get to see some of my colleagues and see their lovely smiles.  I think I have mentioned it before but the team at the centre are an amazing bunch, kind, funny and compassionate.  I really hope that you have that experience with team members during your interactions.

I do get feedback from time to time from you about individual workers but if you wanted to send me a short story or an anecdote, then I would love to include it in a future blog – so you know how it goes email me tony@ccth.org.uk

Outreach Volunteers need for Beyond the Streets

Beyond the Streets is a UK charity working with women involved in prostitution and supporting local grassroots projects to provide outreach and support. Our vision is to see a world where people are free from exploitation, and where those involved in prostitution have the option to pursue genuine alternatives, free from constraints such as drug use, abusive relationships, and poverty. We do this by developing and equipping local projects to work with women in their community and by working directly with women through our own projects, of which Door of Hope is one.

Please see the exciting opportunity with Beyond the Street to become an outreach volunteer with them. The closing date is the 28th of June.

For any queries, please email recruitment@beyondthestreets.org.uk
