Aims & activities

We are a Christian support to the community within Stourbridge. After a local survey of needs in the community, the Management Team decided to initially concentrate on Debt Advice and so Life Centre Debt Advice was launched in association with Community Money Advice (CMA) as part of this initiative. It is expected in future years to expand the outreach of the Life Centre into different projects.
