Cyrenians Background
  • The UK-wide Simon or Cyrenian movement of the 1960s encouraged members of local communities to open hearts and minds to people who rejected or were rejected by normal society.
  • Practical help to combat poverty, isolation and homelessness would be provided by setting up outreach services and shared homes, run as conscious communities, offering a sense of belonging and involvement as much as a place to live: an alternative community.
  • Engaging with people trapped on the margins and working with them to fulfil their potential as contributing members of society
  • Core Values of acceptance, respect and tolerance with practical, day to day ways of working with people facing challenges in their lives.

Key Worker Practice Model
  • our attitude We treat people with the respect of equals (adult to adult). We respond to the whole person rather than just the evident problems.
  • our style We work with people, preferring where possible to work ‘at the shoulder’ rather than from the other side of a desk. We want to create independence, not dependency.
  • our practice We are flexible, tolerant and understanding. We are tenacious in the offer of help and, if we are can’t help we will guide people to those who can.
