About Us

His Provision was born out of a local church soup kitchen/food pantry and registered with companies house in June 2013. Initially operating from the church premises and a small rented shop we were blessed when Green Pastures purchased our multi purpose premises for us in January 2015. The new centre has allowed us to offer supported accommodation to four men, plus move on accommodation for a further two clients. We also host a community hub, free family meal, volunteering opportunities, community café and training centre, and also houses our food pantry.

ABOUT US

As a not for profit, social enterprise, Travel Assist has designed the business model on the foundation of their two major social objectives, which are;

From the very start, Travel Assist has based all business decisions on the ethics of our social objectives, which is to provide opportunities, equality and respect. However, as the business has developed, Travel Assist has recognised that it has a responsibility to look at the impact the work carried out by the organization has on the environment. Therefore, a third social objective has been added:

(3). Sustaining responsible use of energy to minimalise the impact on the environment.
