A DAY IN THE LIFE....
Our day here starts with the hostel residents getting up, dressed and having breakfast before the hostel closes at 9:30am. Whilst everyone must leave their room, they are welcome to stay warm and dry in our day centre if they choose to.
At 10am, Monday to Friday, we open our gates and everyone is welcome to join us in our Day Centre to access support, have something hot to eat or just to have a hot drink and watch some TV in the company of others. (At the weekends and on Bank Holidays our Day Centre opens between 2pm and 5pm.)
Our Day Centre gates close at 2pm so that anyone that wants to can join in with one of our focussed afternoon classes. Normally these are literacy on Mondays, exercise on Tuesdays, art on Wednesdays, cooking on Thursdays and games on Fridays though we do sometimes need to change these!
People taking part in the class, can join us for afternoon tea at 3:30pm and have hot drinks and some snack food. We close the Day Centre at 4pm after afternoon tea has finished and the people that don't live in our hostel leave us for the day.
At 4pm, clients that are resident with us can return to their room if they want to or they can watch TV, play video games, chat in the common area.
An evening meal is served at 6pm with the residents having the evening free to spend as they wish before it's time for bed no later than 1am during the week and 2am on Friday and Saturday nights.
