The Bus Stop Club

The Turbary Resource Centre is the home of the Bus Stop Club, a charity set up to support local families.  We also have the East Dorset CAP Centre located at the centre working with residents living in East Dorset who want to get out of debt – CAP stands for Christians Against Poverty, a national charity based in Bradford – we will help anyone regardless of background or culture as long as they are committed to becoming debt free.

Anyone interested in the work of the charity is welcome to come – just book with Susan at the Centre or by email.  We will be hearing how support from CAP has changed people’s lives for the better.

In school holidays we run Make Lunch.  This is for children eligible for Pupil Premium and families with a low income who would benefit from a hot nutritious meal and activities for the kids for one week of the holidays.

The project typically runs during the half term breaks, one week at Easter, and one week during the summer.  We secure sponsorship every year for this project – if you know of any local families who would like to come do contact us for more details.

Friday nights during term time - the Good Food Community Caff serves healthy low cost meals – open to anyone – whether on your own or with family, come and make friends and enjoy some good food at the end of the week.  Open from 4.30 – 6pm. (Hot food is served around 5pm).

SOS Ferndown runs preiodically throug the year as a weekly support group for adults affected by childhood abuse or trauma.  Referrals from statutory agencies welcome – or individuals can book themselves.  Please contact Susan Sutherland by email for more details.

Want to come visit our Centre?  We run an after school drop-in for parents and school children on Wednesday afternoons from 3pm – come and pay us a visit!

Finally, a big thank you to support from Ferndown Town Councillors and other local funders.
