Graih is a Manx word meaning love and charity that no-one can pronounce!
Starting out of Broadway, Graih developed into independent charity. In 2022, the charity started the process of shutting down its operations, while the work once again became a direct part of the church.
The core of the work is a daily drop-in for homeless people and others in need, with access to a range of services. Alongside the drop-in, our work includes home visits and other aspects of community pastoral support. Sadly, emergency overnight accommodation is not currently offered, although the Isle of Man Government has undertaken to provide this in the near future.
Andy Feather, our Homeless Ministry Team Leader, manages all aspects of the work, assisted by Yvette Armstrong, our Drop-In Co-ordinator. At the heart of the drop-in is a small army of compassionate and skilled volunteers. Our aim is to offer hospitality, support and love to whoever comes through the door, to walk alongside people over the long term as a demonstration of God’s care.
