City and Farm Communities

Cyrenians has four residential communities, which provide accommodation and support to people. The purpose of the Communities is to provide a safe and stable community environment for people to live, learn and develop together.

The Communities were the first projects and are still at the heart of what the Cyrenians do. They focus on shared living between residents and volunteers, including:

  • shared responsibilities for household jobs like shopping, cooking and cleaning
  • shared decision-making around managing their home and its finances
