Southampton City Mission (CIO)

Charity description

Southampton City Mission (CIO) logo
SCM is an independent Christian mission working together with churches in the city to bless and serve our city.

We currently have two key projects:SCM Basics Bank - providing emergency food and clothes to those in need in Southampton.SCM Schools - providing exciting assemblies and RE days to support local schools. And introducing our fledgling Workplace Chaplaincy project, spending time listening to, talking with and supporting people in the workplace.

SCM Basics Bank operates from 6 venues across Southampton. Our Manager works alongside teams of dedicated volunteers to help people who find themselves in a crisis. Clients are referred to us by referral agents (e.g. health visitors, social services, other charities) and receive 5 days of food and/or a voucher for clothes depending on their needs. Clients are welcomed with a cuppa and friendly chat whilst their food parcel is prepared. We hold information on other support services so that we can signpost clients towards further help.

SCM Schools delivers lively, engaging assemblies & RE days in schools in & around Southampton. Through Question of Faith RE days we support schools in delivering the Christian elements of the RE curriculum. We work in line with their planning to put together a day of teaching & activities centred around the current theme.
