Cyrenians Community Centre
A unique community resource and innovative partnership.
The Cyrenians Community Centre is an award-winning project that offers health support, subsidised food, advice and training to disadvantaged people by day, and is a venue for community groups in the evenings.
The project is a partnership between Cyrenians Cymru and the Swansea Local Health Board and provides a great demonstration of collaborative working between the public and voluntary sectors and the innovative restoration and mixed community use of an historic building.
It is common for people who are homeless not to be registered with a GP and therefore liable to leaving potentially harmful medical conditions unchecked. The Centre offers access to a doctor, a nurse and a podiatrist and can advise individuals on general health, nutrition and if required, refer on for specialist care. The Centre houses a low cost café, a food co-operative, training rooms, a laundry, and shower facilities. The grounds include a small food growing and gardening project with a greenhouse built from used plastic bottles.
There is limited street parking near the Centre but Swansea train station, several bus routes and a pay and display car park are very close. Access to the Centre for visitors is by appointment only.
