“Relationship at the heart of all we do”
Who Are We?
Our vision is to bring hope and restoration to the lives of the most vulnerable people in our community. Our focus is on building relationship, working not just to put a plaster over the problem but instead supporting our clients to see sustainable change.
We believe the bible calls us not just to love people, but to love them well – going the extra mile, and not just meeting temporary need. We support those in crisis to look deeper at the causes of problems, often exacerbated by factors such as isolation or low self-esteem. We then work with individuals to resolve these crisis, whether it be debt, struggles with mental health or substance abuse, unemployment, relationship breakdown, difficulties with benefits, isolation or a wide variety of other issues.
Once a client has reached a point of stability, our focus is then on working with them over the long term, providing a family and a community, supporting the development of self-esteem and aspiration and giving, opportunities to develop skills and experience, or support into employment.
We believe in creating family, eating together, laughing together and doing life together. We know that it’s not just programs and services which change lives, but instead it’s relationship. This focus on creating a family, providing our clients with the highest quality and being ambitious make up the core of who we are.
“Number 11 is here to provide a home. Ultimately, we know it’s not programmes or services that change lives, but instead it’s relationship – so we’re all about family. We’re not about plasters over problems, instead we want to see sustainable change, so we offer high quality, long-term focussed support. Finally, we’re ambitious for every single client who comes through our doors, we’re here to help them not just survive but thrive. Family, quality and ambition – that’s pretty much us in a nutshell.”James Adams

“Burslem shows some of the highest levels of deprivation in the whole of the UK. Our aim is to change this, working alongside individuals from our community in the most challenging times, but also aiming to prevent crisis happening again.Tom Hall
