MCKS Charitable Fund funds Day Centre Worker Post

Crawley Open House was delighted to receive a cheque from The MCKS Charitable Foundation for £37,500 this week.

The donation will be used to fund 50% of the Day Centre Health Worker position over 2 years.

Every £1.00 given to Crawley Open House, pays for support which reduces costs by £7.50 for statutory services such as the Police, the NHS, Mental Health services, Adult Social Services, etc.

Crawley Open House has supported the homeless and vulnerable of Crawley and a large swathe of Mid and West Sussex since 1994 and operates a 24 bed high support hostel, busy drop-in day centre open 365 days a year, 3 move-on properties and a community outreach team.

We offer respite, resettlement and hope to those who have fallen through the cracks in the system.

Last year nearly 16,000 people visited Crawley Open House's day-centre, for all sorts of reasons. One thing they are offered is time with their day centre health worker, who can advise and signpost on a range of issues such as dental complaints, drug misuse, mental health, physical health, alcohol abuse and complications around the use of methadone and other prescribed medications. It is a vital lifeline for many vulnerable members of the local community.

We would also like to thank the MCKS volunteers who go into Crawley Open House on a weekly basis to deliver relaxation & wellbeing sessions and 1 to 1 Pranic Healing sessions.
