The Vine Centre, Aldershot. Who we are and what we do.
The Vine Centre has been around for 35 years, starting out as a soup kitchen, evolving to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community with a broad range of services. We aim to support the community with their needs as and when they arise.
The Vine Centre exists to serve the community. We aim to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community; adults and families that are socially isolated, long term unemployed, homeless or poorly housed, suffering with mental health, addiction or learning difficulties. Often individuals will approach us for one service, then when a good level of trust has been built they will engage with other services and activities that we offer.
With our wrap-around services we are able to support a client on their whole journey, reducing any barriers to progression or engagement that they may face. We take pride in being a safe and welcoming centre, where adults of all ages and nationalities feel comfortable to access.
We provide training and development opportunities, addiction support, mental health and anger management, budgeting and benefit support, counselling, support with homelessness and housing sustainment. We run social groups to help combat social isolation and provide opportunities for our beneficiaries to learn, grow and feel empowered to make positive changes and sustainable independence.
