WHAT IS ACE OF CLUBS?

Ace of Clubs is a family-like community providing transformative support for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised in our area.

At our centre on St Alphonsus Road we provide for the immediate needs of those in desperate circumstances with safe shelter, food, warmth, clothing, laundry and showers.

From this welcoming start, and through friendly and genuine care, we seek to build relationship with people.
The team at Ace of Clubs is skilled and focused in linking people in with a wide range of services including accommodation, welfare, rehab, training, healthcare and many others.

Ace of Clubs is a place where those who are alone can find acceptance, a sense of belonging and renewed purpose to see their lives restored.

A few of the highlights from last year were that we provided 20,000 meals, helped 92 people off the streets and into accommodation and 36 people into rehabilitation from addiction.

At the moment we are helping between 80 and 100 people per day. The number of people coming to us for help has more than doubled over the last year due to the recession, job losses and a severe increase in homelessness. Government cuts to public services is meaning more and more people depending on Ace of Clubs to see their lives turned around.
