Faithworks builds partnerships with churches and other organisations in the community to run practical, local projects in urban Dorset to help people to get out of and stay out of crisis.
We focus our work on those at key transition points in life: rough-sleepers, lone parents, those in material crisis (food) and debt or financial confusion, and individuals struggling with addiction.
The Dementia Friendly Churches and FOCUS carers support projects are both now run by PramaLife – call 01202 207300
Debt + Budget Support
Debt is a heavy burden to bear - it affects everything. So, we not only work with people to make sense of their finances, and help them build a debt repayment plan, but we also give them ways that they can get control and prevent future crisis
We run 5 Foodbanks in Dorset in partnership with local churches. Not only do we give out food but also run Cooking on a Budget courses, Debt Advice, special packs for those in B&B. Our goal is to help you get out of crisis, get back on your feet and stay out of crisis.
Lone Parent Families
A unique community project supported by Faithworks. SMILE provides support, activities and friendship to lone parent families.
Addiction + Recovery
We provide a range of support and resources to enable those in or affected by addiction to find hope and freedom
BCARS (Bournemouth Christians Alongside Rough Sleepers) are a group of people from local churches with a common aim to help rough sleepers get off our streets and stay off our streets.
