Social Involvement

We are committed to playing our part in serving the vulnerable in Oswestry and doing all we can to make Oswestry a better place to live. We are always looking at new ways to serve people. Here’s what we are currently involved with:

Compass

A new project to help people experiencing homelessness. Compass is a medium term supported accommodation project. We have just welcomed our first four residents and are so excited to provide a programme which will them develop the confidence and skills they need to solve the challenges in their life.
