Our Mission

We help homeless people achieve a better life by supporting them to:

  • Develop their independence
  • Improve their ability to tackle setbacks
  • Improve their ability to identify and change negative behaviour
  • Improve their wellbeing

We get to know people because we want them to realise that they can trust us to help them. When people trust us they are more willing to take part in activities and seek 1-1 support to address their issues.

Typically issues will include:

  • Lack of accommodation
  • Broken family relationships
  • History of offending
  • Poor mental and physical health
  • Substance misuse

Positive Pathways

The Cathedral Archer Project is pleased to be working with Positive Pathways, the Church Urban Fund’s five-year homelessness prevention programme. The Cathedral Archer Project and Positive Pathways have similar approaches to homelessness by seeking to help people with experience of homelessness to move forward in life, focusing on developing a broad range of life skills and with an end goal of permanent sustainable accommodation and a life beyond homelessness.

Positive Pathways are funding a post in the Project and as well as working to build positive relationships with homeless adults enabling lives to be changed, the post holder will take part in and contribute to cross learning between Sheffield and other areas where Positive Pathways is working. In the end the aim is for people to live stable, fulfilling and enjoyable lives. There are a lot of services on offer. These include:Assessment and signposting to appropriate service providers 1:1 support
