Equipping Individuals for a Brighter Tomorrow
One Step at a Time

When someone registers with the Shrewsbury Ark, we give them a safe space to tell us their story and together, we create a personal development plan tailored to their specific aspirations and aimed at shaping a brighter future.

Practical support is at our core, providing basic facilities, hot meals, clothing, toiletries, and sleeping bags. But it's more than just services. We offer emotional and mental support that's invaluable.

We're the only organisation in Shropshire offering a day centre with this kind of support, and we take pride in nurturing lives, offering not just immediate help but also a path to resilience and empowerment.


Basic Facilities

We understand that each person's needs are unique. If you are homeless, your priorities might be accessing the basic facilities provided in our day centre, like:

  • Bathrooms

  • laundry services

  • Internet

  • Device Charging

  • Postal Address

  • Place for official meetings

  • Toiletries

  • Sleeping Bags 

  • Clothes

  • Hot meals




Navigating the system and filling in forms can be a confusing and exhasperating process.  You will be allocated a support team to offer help and advice with claiming benefits, applying for housing or looking for employment. 


Your support workers will check in with your progress and encourage you to get the support you deserve and identify opportunities that will help you to achieve your goals.

If we don't have the expertise to help, we will introduce you to partner organisations who can.

Housing, employment and benefits advice
