Every day not every Sunday
Our commitment to empower others across Southampton and beyond
The Street is where City Life provides practical support and care in Southampton and overseas to those who don't necessarily have a church connection. This is mainly through projects and building community in a variety of ways.
CLEAR (City Life Education and Action for Refugees) is a city-centre-based project helping refugees with advice, free English classes, and practical support with things such as immigration, benefits, housing, or getting a job.
