They say that working in Compliance can be quite harsh. Our Compliance Manager Jason wanted to set the record straight, and show that Compliance has a soft side.
The Mosaic Day Centre in Tunbridge Wells recently opened their doors to their newly renovated premises, which is operated by the Tunbridge Wells Churches Street Teams. The centre provides lots of different support, services, and advice to local residents in need. One of the services that this fantastic location runs is a daily soup bowl. This is a way to offer food and drink as well as a friendly place to rest and meet other people in similar situations.
Jason said: “it was a warming time at the soup bowl, I met people from all walks of life who have been affected by difficult times and struggles. Being able to give my time brought joy not just to them, but to me as well. I chatted with some of the people who dropped in, reminiscing about our youth in Tunbridge Wells and hearing their stories, some heroic and even daring. It is wonderful to see the support services available and the efforts by the Church Team and Local Authorities to ensure everyone has the help and support they need”.
Mosaic also offers assistance with pre-employment support, such as CV and debt advice. Housing support is also provided by the Centre for those who need it. Within the centre, there is a great amount of amenities. For instance, there is a washing machine and dryer, shower room and clothing available. Temporary shelter provisions are also available if the need arises. The Team have also linked up with a local children’s charity to provide rooms for courses. Areas for counselling are also available.
