Who is Turn a Corner for?
We welcome anyone who would like to join us for a chat or borrow a book. The project has been designed to provide a supportive space for people affected by homelessness. This includes but is not limited to people who are sofa surfing, homeless, living in a hostel, night shelter, B&B or living in conditions that affect their health or leave them at risk of violence or abuse at home. We also welcome refugees and asylum seekers.
