We know that life can be unbelievably tough. We don’t have a magic wand to make your problems disappear. But, given the chance, many people are able to find a way through their problems themselves, if there is someone there giving them time and space to talk. We can help you to explore your options and come to your own decisions about what’s best for you. Our support may help you find your own way forward.

St Augustine’s Community Support
St. Augustine’s Centre

St. Augustine’s Centre, based on Hanson Lane in Halifax, is a community centre for anyone who needs help, advice or support. Based on the Christian faith which respects and values individuals, the Centre welcomes the vulnerable and cares for all, regardless of faith, ethnicity, background or any other factors.
The building offers a warm and welcoming environment for people to access support and advice from friendly workers and volunteers. There are over 60 volunteers and they are the backbone of the Centre. We aim to help with basic needs and hope to build confidence to encourage participation within the community and to prevent isolation.
This is achieved through:
- Weekly Support Groups offering befriending, food, information and direction towards other agencies
- Adult Education, both on an informal and formal basis, to share skills and to learn new ones
- Social Activities within the local community which aim to develop better relationships between the host community and those who have moved here from other countries
- Advice Sessions, covering such areas as education, employment, adapting to the UK culture, citizenship and immigration. Basic legal advice is offered by OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner) registered workers
