Our Drop In runs on Mondays and Thursdays from 1.00pm to 4.00pm.
Informal chat, refreshments, and advice/information for anyone, especially those who are homeless, unemployed or seeking UK residency/asylum. All vulnerable adults are welcome. Refreshments take the form of coffee/tea on tap and a 2 course nutritional meal.
Our guests can also have a shower whilst they are here and we can wash and dry clothes – subject to how busy the washing maching/tumble dryer are.
We provide a lap top for guests to undertake job searches and we also help with benefit applications.
New! Check out the poems of one of our Drop In guests Dawn Bland here… Her poems share her experiences of domestic violence and mental health issues. The publication of her book has been both cathartic for her and for those who read it.
Time to talk
During the Drop In sessions, we can arrange an opportunity to talk in confidence with a member of the Church Leadership Team or Pastoral Team. We also provide a prayer room that can be used by guests at any time.
We also have regular visits from a member of Wakefield District Council housing team who can help with housing needs.
We also have a monthly visit from a TB nurse who can do blood tests for TB and other blood borne diseases.
Facilitators: Mandy Sherrard, Night Shelter Coordinator and David Taylor, Drop In Coordinator
