Social Interest Group (SIG) is a leading UK charity providing bespoke person-centred health and social care services.
Through SIG Penrose, SIG Equinox, SIG Pathways to Independence, SIG Safe Ground, and SIG Housing Trust. Across SIG, we have some fantastic services that enable meaningful change in the lives of some of our society’s most vulnerable and marginalised people.
This Christmas, we are working to raise some much-needed funds for five of our community-based and residential services so they can provide additional support for participants and residents throughout 2024. We have included more information below about each of these campaigns:
Penrose: Bridge House – Based in Luton, Bridge House is a women-only temporary housing service for mothers with young children fleeing crisis and experiencing homelessness. This Christmas, we are raising money to improve Bridge House’s Garden to transform the space into somewhere for the women and children to enjoy. We are also raising money to fund family days out for the residents in 2024. To find out more and make a donation, visit Penrose: Bridge House Christmas Appeal 2023 – JustGiving
Equinox: The Solace Centre – The Solace Centre is an out-of-hours mental health service that supports people with long and enduring mental illness, combats loneliness and isolation through social inclusion, and maintains wellness and healthy lifestyles in Ealing. This Christmas, we are raising funds to transform a room at The Solace Centre to create a private and peaceful space to enable members to receive 1:1 support for their mental health and wellbeing.

Pathways to Independence – Pathways provides supported housing for vulnerable, single homeless people with additional support needs in Kent and Medway. This Christmas, we are raising funds to provide art activities and equipment for the residents of Pathways to help build their confidence and sense of self, helping them to move forward in their recovery journey.

Equinox: Brighton Women’s Service – Brighton Women’s Service is a women-only residential project providing assistance for women who have experienced homelessness, domestic violence, physical and emotional abuse, and have support needs around mental health, drugs and alcohol and offending behaviours.
