We are delighted to announce that we will be launching SoundCafe To Take Away on the 12th August. This activity takeaway service will be based at The Centre project at 1 Alfred Place in Leicester city centre.

SoundCafe To Take Away is a response to regular SoundCafe Leicester (SCL) services for homeless people and vulnerable adults being suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead of our usual face to face drop-in sessions at the cafe, we are offering guests a creative activity and refreshment to take away with pastoral support and information available at the point of collection.

SoundCafe to take away Leicester

This service is intended to address the challenges of isolation and vulnerability. The delivery team, made up of SCL staff and volunteers will be located under an identifiable pop-up gazebo. We are not just focused on refreshment, but more importantly on information, support and care. Our takeaway will provide contact and pastoral support as well as the opportunity for guests and volunteers to share their thoughts as to how we can re-shape our service for the future.

This project has been made possible by our partnership working with The Centre project and funding awarded by the Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation and the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund.
