Our Drop-In service offers practical support in a friendly atmosphere to meet the immediate needs of people who are rough sleeping or in a crisis. We offer a warm welcome, a hot meal, showers, clothing, and laundry; and referral to emergency accommodation advice, health clinics and other specialist support.

When people drop in for these services, we find out how we can support them longer-term. We also try to make sure our clients are indoors and safe on the coldest nights of the year.

Our Drop In is currently running on restricted numbers and we're able to see people who are rough sleeping or in a housing crisis, from 9am - 12.45pm, Monday to Friday. All our services are available over the phone and we can work with you to make an appointment too. Contact us on: 0121 766 1700,  9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday.

What our clients say

Chris has been a client here for six years. Now he volunteers with us in the kitchen too.

“I came here mainly to have breakfast this morning. It’s not just to get breakfast, it’s to chat to people - to chat to your friends. I know so many people around here and they all know me.”
