“Without the Camrose centre I would still be out on the street. I had no clue where to get help prior to coming here. The Camrose Centre has changed my life for the better when I was at my lowest ebb”
The Camrose Centre has been running since January 2008 and was initiated by a group of local volunteers who had recognised an increasing issue within the town concerning vulnerable, isolated and homeless people. The Centre was initially under the umbrella of Trinity Winchester until June 2012 when the then current building in Vyne Road, Basingstoke was no longer available and Trinity withdrew their management of the service. At that time, Basingstoke Voluntary Action stepped in to ensure the work of Camrose could continue and develop.
