Hi folks


The project is now open serving free hot meals 10am-2pm Monday to Friday with limited outdoor seating available. People visiting the project for hot food are encouraged to take a take away meal away with them. Very limited ourdoor seating is available for anyone who is unable to take a meal away with them.  Support staff are available in our Covid compliant work area 10am-2pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Masks or face shields need to be worn in our building when accessing support staff unless you are medically exempt. Distancing is in place around our building and in all areas inside. Please respect our social distancing rules.


We can help with advice about  food, money, health, accommodation and benefits  or we can  get you in touch with lots of other services that can help you.


We are open currently on Monday to Friday 10am -2pm  offering hot take away food and welfare packs, advice, guidance and support appointments and access to telephone support from the Homeless GP Service and Achieve Recovery from our garden space or by phone.


Please take care, be safe.
