Description

Outline

Open Doors aims to provide a warm and friendly welcome to asylum seekers, refugees and migrant workers, offering a safe place for association and practical and social assistance to people of all faiths and none.

Drop-in - Thursdays 10am-1pm

At the drop-in, we offer free morning refreshments and a hot two/three course lunch, cooked on the premises. The drop-in is staffed mainly by volunteers, some of whom are themselves refugees or asylum seekers.  We offer many services and activities, at the drop-in, such as:

  • befriending
  • English classes
  • food and hygiene products and small sum of money for destitute asylum seekers
  • clothing store
  • bike club
  • women's craft club
  • singing and music making
  • allotment
  • advice and consultation with agencies such as NHS and Red Cross
  • translating and interpreting service [VITS]

Some limited accommodation is also available locally.

Open Doors is funded by church organisations, personal donations, national and local funding bodies.
