Preventing Homelessness Through Partnership
The Fred Winter Centre is a community hub supporting local people in Stratford-upon-Avon, with a focus on providing housing plus a range of services which address homelessness and hardship.
The Fred Winter Centre is a one stop hub for people in our local community, located in the heart of Stratford town centre. It is supported by many charities, businesses and public bodies, and is managed by an experienced housing association. All in one building, these partners and providers have come together to offer help and advice and provide affordable new homes.
As a multi-disciplinary community hub, the centre tackles hardship by providing a range of services to help people improve their health and wellbeing, overcome financial problems, secure job opportunities and sustain tenancies in local affordable homes. The Fred Winter Centre also provides access to self-contained affordable apartments within the same building. A community cafe and bakery is being developed within the centre, creating onsite training and employment.
