the hub

The Hub is the heart of The Bridge Homelessness to Hope and the central point of activity,

where we are able to offer a wide range of services and therapeutic sessions to our guests.

Our long term strategic aim is to work with our partners to develop The Hub so that local agencies can deliver their services in an accessible, welcoming and non-judgemental environment.

opening Soon!

The Community Café will be the focal point of The Hub and the perfect space for our guests to socialise with others.

 

Here, our guests will be able to sit in a warm, safe and relaxing environment whilst enjoying a hot drink and a nutritious meal - lovingly prepared by our fantastic team of staff and volunteers. 

Our community space will offer all the trappings of a regular city centre café - as well as offering a safe space for support workers to meet with their clients.

Due to Covid-19, we are currently running a

reduced food service for our guests on Monday, Thursday and Friday 10 am - 2 pm.

creative sessions

The Creative Sessions are one of the many ways we support our guests with their mental health and wellbeing.

The recreational activities we provide including music, art and cooking offer a safe space for our guests to learn new skills, build their confidence and express their thoughts and feelings through a range of therapeutic practices. 

Why not support our guests by volunteering at one of our weekly Creative Sessions?

sports therapy

Preparations are underway for our Sport & Health Project which will be a recognised and evidenced model of good practice for the benefits of physical activity in improving people's physical and mental health, social relationships and overall quality of life.

 

In making activities accessible, the project will debunk the myth that people experiencing homelessness aren’t interested in or can’t do sport, or that people don’t care about the state of their own health.

If you are interested in hosting a Sport or Health activity at The Bridge please, get in touch with us via hello@bridgeleicester.org

Gardening

outdoor therapy

We believe in the health benefits of horticulture as well as spending time in the great outdoors, from walks in the country side and parks to volunteering on wildlife conservations projects.

 

This is why we are currently developing a range of activities off and on site at The Hub that promote a healthy wellbeing for the mind and body.

By partnering with other organisations, our guests will also be able to visit the wider natural world and pursue activities such as hiking and climbing, as well enjoy all the benefits of a living a healthier lifestyle.
