Organisation aims and objectives

RCT’s initial aim was to support people affected by homelessness through providing Care & Share - a drop-in facility (with a meal) where health support could be provided and clients could be sign-posted to other relevant services. It has evolved over the past 12 years into an organisation providing a range of services to people in recovery from alcohol & drug issues and people affected by homelessness. The core event each week is the drop-in facility where an average of 60 people per week can access 10 different social care, health care and financial services on a one-stop-shop basis.
