Plant a seed at Ben's Centre
Why we need your help
Ben's Centre is fast approaching its 25th year of service in Sheffield.
The covid 19 crisis has presented us with many challenges and has made us look to the future more than ever.
Our team have worked tirelessly to support our clients in new and creative ways during lockdown rules and government protocols. It has made us realise the value of our team and our charity. each and every one of our team of staff and trustees have given eveything and anything they can to continue our work. The public community across Sheffield have supported us in incredible ways and we realise just how lucky we are to be supported by such generous and caring people.
We have realised two very important things:
1 We need a forever home!
Ben's is here to stay through any adversity that gets thrown at it, just like our clients we will never stop trying to turn things around and make the future brighter than the past.
2 We cannot do all that we wish to do in our current building.
We have dreams, dreams of more training, more workshops, more space for individuals to become the best version of themselves that they can be! More rooms for people to develop their hobbies, to work with external organisations, to learn and progress! Our sanctuary is bursting at the seems and we need more space to usher more people under our wings.
We want you to plant a seed at Ben's Centre
We want you to believe in us and what we do, believe that we can make a difference to people's lives; lives hindered by substance misuse, homelessness, mental and physical health issues, social isolation and a whole host of issues brought about through the trauma of the past.
We plan to find a new premises and grow an orchard. One tree after another, all grown from the seeds of generosity and kindness, belief and positivity.
We will decorate our new premises with the fruits of this generosity, our new dining room will be painted with orange trees sposored by our funders, each leaf, each orange will be named, immortalising our supporters for all to see!
