Ben's Centre For Vulnerable People (sheffield)
We have been providing a day service to Sheffield’s street drinkers for over 17 years. The project provides a “damp” day service to street drinkers, some of the most vulnerable and excluded citizens of Sheffield, and as such is unique in its provision. The project works to accept individuals where they are and acts as a bridge between an individuals chaotic street drinking lifestyle and one that enables them to fulfill their potential as individuals in society.
The philosophy that the project is based on is one of harm minimisation – reducing the impact chronic alcohol abuse has – and inclusiveness – providing a service to those who are frequently excluded from other service
