Sacred Heart Mission is committed to measuring and evaluating our impact so that we continue to evolve and serve our clients’ needs. A crucial part of this evaluation is gathering client feedback. Every year, we survey clients who access our Engagement Hubs or supported accommodation.
In April 2021, 85 Sacred Heart Mission clients participated in the survey. We have collated their responses into four main categories. Hear directly from clients below about what a takeaway meal has meant to them during a time of need or how Sacred Heart Mission’s services have helped others to feel less alone.
