Space (Aylesbury)

If You are going through difficult times, you are not alone.

WHO WE ARE

If you are going through difficult times, you are not alone. Everyone experiences difficult times once in a while.

You may feel alone and isolated. These times can be difficult and even traumatic, Space can offer support. We support people who are going through relationship difficulties, depression, bereavement, unemployment, mental health problems, loneliness, or any combination of these issues.

We can support you by providing:
• A safe place to unwind and think
• Someone who will listen to you in confidence and without judgement
• Information about other organisations
• A chance to meet others.

  • A weekly walking group & weekly art group.
  • Surplus food distribution.

Our Objectives

  • To increase beneficiaries overall wellbeing (mental, physical, emotional, spiritual).
  • To reduce beneficiaries social isolation.
  • To increase beneficiaries confidence and independence.
  • To give opportunities to (re)gain life skills that can result in future volunteering and paid employment.
So we are a charity. Space is open to all regardless of faith, age, sex, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or disability.

Our Story

Space first started in 1987 with one Sunday drop-in at St. Mary’s Church. It has grown organically and in response to the need presented. In 2017 we were awarded a Dignity and Respect Award by Buckinghamshire County Council. In the same year we were the Aylesbury Town Mayor’s ‘charity’ of the year. In 2018 we became a registered charity.
