Wayside Chapel operates a range of onsite services and outreach programs that place dignity, respect and love at the heart of their approach. They see everyone who walks through the door as a person to be met, not a problem to be solved.

2 hours online with interactive activities and team challenges.
Participants will have the opportunity to self-reflect, draw parallels to their team and work environments and consider how their own actions impact others.

They will be challenged to look at new ideas and how they can use those to improve the world around them.
You'll discover ways the charity serves the community and supports those people experiencing homelessness and social isolation, whilst gaining some useful insights and tips for yourself. You'll brainstorm and discuss new ideas and ways the charity may be able to support their community. You'll also get to know your colleagues and have fun whilst increasing your social impact! All ideas will be shared directly with Wayside Chapel to help them in their mission to create a community with “no us and them".
