Marah Trust

Thu 1st February 2018 at 19.30 - 21.30

Committed to supporting vulnerable and marginalised adults in the Stroud District

Jackie Natt, who has been a volunteer at the Marah Trust for three years, and is also a trustee, will be speaking about the Trust, what the organisation does, why there is a need for this form of charity and about homelessness in general.

Marah is a Christian charitable organisation committed to supporting vulnerable and marginalised adults in the Stroud District, helping them to move on from their addictions and circumstances. As Jackie says: “We work with people on the margins of society: those who are excluded from the everyday, positive experiences of life due to their circumstances, life history and others' perception of them.

“Our purpose is to offer friendship, wholesome food, advice, respect and hope to the people who come to us for assistance. We reach out to those in need, providing fellowship and support in a non-judgemental, welcoming framework.

“Our vision is to be a key provider of support to those in need in the Stroud District, helping them to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing. We aim to achieve this by helping our clients to access existing statutory and charitable services. Where these services are unsuitable or unavailable, Marah will aim to provide this help direct.”
