TK VISION STATEMENT
TK provides compassion and practical support to women facing a variety of vulnerable circumstances through the provision of:-
(a) Recovery groups meeting in and around Ipswich for any woman needing support with their addictions.
(b) A community (The Hope Centre) where vulnerable women can receive support and encouragement to realise their potential.
TK is a charity with a clear Christian ethos, we offer healing and hope for any woman who seeks it.
We work with our primary stakeholders who are Christians with a compassionate heart, and partnerships with third sector organisations, statutory authorities, private companies, and individuals. The women are referred to us or approach us for assistance.
The project name means ‘little girl, get up’ and is taken from the Bible. However, our service and ministry is open to those of any belief or none.
Our Patron is the Right Reverend Mike Harrison, Bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese.
