The Marsh Community Centre is situated on the middle of a deprived social housing estate where there are a lot of misunderstood young people, a very diverse estate where there is a lot of criminal activity, we aim to help everyone in the local community. We run drop-in sessions for people aged 16 and over who can have access to our computers, kitchen, boxing equipment. We help people with benefits, housing, employment advice. We deal with a lot of domestic violence and poverty. Here at The Marsh we run youth work sessions for ages 4-18 on various days. On Fridays we run a group for women of all ages, the group has a variety of activities, or if people just want a chat, they often have days out together. We deal with a lot of Asylum Seekers and Refugees whom we help with housing, donations and food bank referrals. We do not judge and treat everyone equally. We try very hard to help our members achieve the best possible life they can with help and understanding, we help them to believe and succeed.
