On Saturday the Pass it On Team Painted the SWCT Youth Music and Arts venue on Drake Street, this was two Lottery Funded projects coming together to brighten up the venue. The project supports 11-24 year olds through Art and Music.  SWCT supports young people who may have experienced traumatic episodes in their lives, such as: Self-harm, Self-medicating, Autistic, bullied and abused.  It gives them a safe and creative supportive space to go to.  It is a great asset for Rochdale's Youths where they can be their self s and find hidden talents and explore they mind through therapeutic projects facilitated by the caring team at the project. 

The Pass It On Team as a group of people with lived life experience believe in giving back to the community and supporting others going through adversity or supporting projects in the local area.

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have STEP Emergency overnight provision. With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
