Worth Society welcomes Bruised Reeds

“Let the abbot temper all things so that the strong may have something to strive for but that the bruised reed may not be broken.” From the Rule of St Benedict, Chapter 64

It has been said that one of Worth’s particular strengths is its aftercare.  We like to keep in touch with our former pupils, and to hear of, or from, anyone who may be in need of help at any particular time in their lives.

Bruised Reeds is an initiative that was originally set up by the Old Gregorians (Downside) as a means of offering confidential support to those who may have fallen on hard times.  This includes those who have fallen foul of the law, the mentally ill, the heavily addicted, the miserably lonely, the homeless or a Worthian who just wants support whatever the circumstances.

If you would like more information on how Bruised Reeds may be of help to you, or to someone that you know, or how you might be able to help and support the programme please contact Jeremy Fletcher, Worth Society Chairman, in confidence on 01342 710241.
