Shrewsbury Ark


Shrewsbury Ark is a day centre that supports vulnerable people. Shrewsbury Ark aims to develop and operate a direct access day centre for the most vulnerable residents of Shrewsbury, offering them advice and support in a warm and welcoming environment.

Shrewsbury Ark offers anything from a cup of tea and a chat, to advice on benefits and jobs. Shrewsbury Ark also provides snacks and light meals throughout the day.

Shrewsbury Ark will offer comfort whenever they can, and will always care. They will try to help the vulnerable and those who feel excluded from society back onto their feet and encourage in them the self-confidence and self-sufficiency to cope for the present and to fend for themselves in the future.

Shrewsbury Ark aims to create:

  • refuge for those in need or distress
  • a haven of friendship, warmth, and welcome in which people are listened to
  • a source of immediate on the spot advice and support designed to contribute to the relief of need and distress
  • a space in which other agencies can offer expert professional advice, help and support
  • a limited menu of free food and drink for those in need
  • an environment and opportunities which build self-confidence and self-respect enabling all to develop their potential
