The Shack

 

The Shack is opening on the 8th May. We are offering a Youth Drop in centre for anyone in school years 7-11. We will offer food and drinks on a pay as you feel basis. We are providing activities that include games consoles, pool table, table games and much more. We can offer a safe place for any young person in Stamford to attend. We want the young people of Stamford to feel welcome at The Shack. We can provide a listening ear for anyone who wants to talk about their life. The Shack is a project run by Stamford Methodist Church.

Stamford Street Pastors

 

Stamford Street Pastors launched in 2011 and has continued to grow with our volunteers becoming familiar faces on the streets of the town on a Saturday night.

Our volunteers come from a range of denominations and churches across the town. All committed to helping, listening and caring to those who find themselves in vulnerable positions late on a Saturday night.

Since Street Pastors began patrolling Stamford has seen a reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour. We work in partnership with the Police, Local Authority, Town Council and others such as the late-night pubs and clubs.

Appreciation for the work we do is unanimous and we welcome hearing from anyone we have helped, or who is interested in being involved either through volunteering or financial donations.

Do get in touch if you’d like to find out more. We’d love to hear from you. For more details click HERE



 


MindSpace Stamford


Creating an exciting network of wellbeing spaces.
MindSpace Stamford was founded by Dr Dan Petrie, a Stamford GP passionate about mental health and wellbeing and is now supported by a group of local trustees.
We are a grass roots initiative connecting people to support wellbeing.
We believe in creating an empathic community where all citizens are valued for their innate humanity and are able to flourish.
Our aim is to increase the knowledge and understanding of mental health, and to provide ways to prevent ill health and help those who may be suffering from illness through better conversations.
