“There’s no referral needed to access our services, you can simply turn up at the door, regardless of your situation or needs and you are welcomed.” Tim, Outreach Manager

We provide the basic things that most people take for granted. Our clients can rely on us for warm clothes, bedding, personal items and a hot meal or cup of tea and a chat when they need it.  If our clients require professional advice or help, we are here to support them. 

When they are ready, we give them opportunities to build self-confidence and develop their potential.  We are here when perhaps no-one else is and (with the help of our supporters) we always will be.

The Shrewsbury Ark is operated by the Shrewsbury Christian Association (SCCA). Find out more about the SCCA and its projects here.

Our Friends

Without the support of local businesses, churches, schools and community groups, The Ark wouldn’t be where it is today.
