Open Door works to relieve the hardship caused by homelessness and to enable life choices to be made
Open Door works with and for homeless people and those who are 'vulnerably housed' to support them into accommodation and to reintegrate into society. They do this through providing 2 weekly drop ins where people can eat a hot meal and access advice and support services such as housing, health, mental health and drug and alcohol support. The Drop In sees around 50 people each week.Why the community needs us
