Shekinah is a Devon based charity that provides opportunities for people in recovery. This may include recovery from homelessness, drug and alcohol issues, offending or mental ill health.
Shekinah seeks to break the chains of negative lifestyles, repeat offending, homelessness and worklessness. We have a range of projects across a number of locations and we provide a safe space for people to develop their skills, regain their self-worth and go on to live independent and fulfilling lives. People accessing our services gain in personal development, confidence and general health. This has a positive impact on both the individuals themselves and the community at large.
Shekinah currently delivers a programme to assist our clients to gain and sustain employment in Plymouth and Torbay. Out of 14 cities nationally who deliver a similar programme, Shekinah consistently has had the highest ‘into employment’ figures assisting this ‘hardest to reach’ group.
Our aim is to give encouragement to the socially excluded, helping them to realise their full potential, move forward in their lives and have the best chance to bring real and lasting change in their lives.
