Positive Pathways

Positive Pathways reaches out to some of the most marginalised people in Middlesbrough, providing individual and group support for vulnerable people experiencing homelessness.

While our involvement in Positive Pathways has ended, the programme itself is still running under De Paul UK.

TM&C are now involved in the wider homelessness agenda both locally and regionally/nationally.

Locally, we are part of the FaiTH (Faith Tackling Homelessness) Forum. The forum was set up to look at the role of the faith sector, alongside partners, in finding sustainable, affordable, solutions to address the longer term issue of local homelessness. Current work of the forum includes supporting the St Vincent de Paul Group of the Catholic Middlesbrough Diocese, in partnership with the Salvation Army, to reinstate the Upper Room Saturday Drop-In for homeless rough sleepers in Middlesbrough.

The forum is also working with local churches, the local authority, and DePaul UK, to support the establishment of a local night shelter.
