We provide a loving environment, food and clothing to some of the most vulnerable adults in Leeds.
We exist to provide on-going support for adults who are homeless, living in poverty or who simply need a sense of belonging and friendship. We work with similar organisations that share our mission and aim to provide information and guidance to those who access the drop-in. We open every Thursday between 7-8:30pm and provide food, hot/cold drinks and where possible clothing. We offer a befriending service and friendly social atmosphere with activities such as table tennis, bingo, movie night etcWhy the community needs us
The majority of our beneficiaries are homeless. Others are in sheltered accommodation and many struggle with alcohol and/or drug addictions. Some suffer with mental health issues and thus networking and partnering with other local charities, shops and organizations is of utmost importance. The goodwill and support of our wider community means that this service is able to happen. Children and families, corporate organisations and many others, all help behind the scenes raising community spirit.Our impact on the community
We currently have between 40-50 people signing in each week and some weeks well over 50! The drop-in is run by a pool of 20 volunteers, yet many more support behind the scenes. Our Winter Program includes a Christmas party which is always a success.The drop-in has become increasingly popular and is well used. Each week there is always a new face!
