They provide a vital service in West Norfolk.

And now they can do that from their swanky new home.

The Purfleet Trust have moved to a bigger space on Austin Fields, see it for yourself below:

 

 

The Purfleet Trust provides help for single homeless people in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.

Its services now include housing advice to help people find accommodation, support to help them maintain their tenancies, and a Health and Wellbeing Centre providing a daily hot meal and the opportunity to gain some essential life skills.

The centre can be used as a postal address and there is free access to both computers and the telephone.

 

We asked Mark where he would be without the Trust:

"I'd probably be somewhere on the streets if it wasn't for the Purfleet and all the support they've given me they're brilliant.

Everyone is friendly here, the old place was nice but we can make a new set of memories here."

Chief Exec Paula Hall told KLFM:

"We were very attached the clients of the service obviously were really attached to the old building.

It's not about the building it's about what goes on inside the building and what've we've created a Purfleet it more than a building it's about that safety.

So it was time for a change, moving over here fabulous opportunities, a wonderful building set in a really good location for us and it means that we are showing our clients there's room for us to develop our services so we can offer more in here.

The environment is beautiful it's nice and crisp and clean so we're hoping that people will start to feel that this will be Purfleet."
