· Welcome Café & Community Lunches
· Advice & Support Service
· ESOL/English Classes
· Housing & Destitution Support
· Employability Support & Training
· Volunteer Programme
· Social, Health & Wellbeing Activities

The Mission: To exceed Councillor Ali’s target of £2,000 in donations to support St. Augustine’s and to help us to continue our work.
