What’s On

St. Augustine’s plans for the foreseeable future :

  • Advice support line: 0774304525 / 07756262024 10am – 3pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
  • Hot lunches provided in takeaway boxes on Mondays and Thursdays from St. Augustine’s Centre. For collection and when possible delivery. 
  • From early-mid April: new food parcel service in partnership with Halifax Opportunities Trust and Himmat. Referrals and delivery only. 
  • We are also exploring online activities including English classes, support groups and sharing up to date information. 

People from all over the world come together as family at St. Augustine’s, and it feels strange not to be able to open the doors. But our priority now is to keep our centre users, staff and volunteers safe by staying at home, and keeping in regular communication. 

Like so many out there, COVID-19 is costing us considerably in terms of time and resources, with a depleted team. Donations are especially welcome now and can be made here on our give.net page.

Thank you to everyone who is working, volunteering and supporting us currently. You replenish us. If you are interested in volunteering with us please email Nia – in time we may need willing and well people to help with food packing, delivery and cooking. Hygiene advice and equipment supplied. 

Welcome to Our Centre

St. Augustine’s Centre, based on Hanson Lane in Halifax, is a community centre for anyone who needs help, advice or support.  Since 1968 we have offered a warm and welcoming environment for people to access support and advice from friendly workers and volunteers. We aim to help individuals with basic needs, and hope to build confidence to encourage participation within the community and to prevent isolation. We strive to respond to the needs of our community, offering specialist advice and support to refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. We welcome everyone, regardless of faith, ethnicity or background to access the support they need and take part in social activities and events.

Donate

Donating to the Centre couldn’t be easier and you can make either a one-off payment or a monthly donation.

If you donate to St. Augustine’s Centre you can be certain that we will use your donation wisely in our work supporting the vulnerable.

Please donate here.

Thank you for your support.

 

Listen to our English for Life in the U.K. podcast!

English for life in the U.K. is one of the ESOL classes here at the Centre, run by a team of our volunteers. There is a weekly podcast to support this class which is available here, which we hope will be of interest to anyone wanting to improve their English and learn more about life in the U.K. There are also transcripts of most of the episodes here, and there is additional material available through our twitter account here.
