Covid-19 Crisis Update

(As at 19th June 2020)


For the last couple of months, our Day Centre has had to stay closed due to Covid-19, on government advice. The Centre may be closed - but we are still working away! We are providing a hot takeaway lunch to at least fifty people daily Monday to Friday. Many of our brilliant regular volunteers are unable to help out, but we are keeping going with lunch service, improving our food safety systems and trying to get the Centre refurbished for reopening in the Autumn, or whenever the government tell us it is safe to operate again.


If you are able to contribute, you could make an important difference to people without homes in this difficult time. Please just press the donate button below.

The socially distanced queue beginning to form for takeaway lunch at Caring Hands.

The new takeaway lunch boxes – vegetarian pasta is part of a menu that varies daily.

If someone were to offer you a crumpled £20, chances are you would take it. The note may be battered, torn or dirty but its value remains the same.

The people we encounter have had a tough time in life; they are homeless and often vulnerable. But, like the £20 note, we believe that everyone has value, and that a person's past or current circumstances do not diminish their worth or their potential. It is our aim to restore the self-confidence of our guests, helping them overcome addictions and other barriers.
