The Good Shepherd's Rest

A non-profit organisation that offers semi-supported accommodation to specific groups of people. We are looking to offer a hand up, not a hand out; to provide that extra bit of support the others are not able; to catch those who do not “fit” into other organisations criteria. We offer multi levels of accommodation.
