Drop Ins

'I feel relaxed here'

Drop ins allow us to get to know our clients and, crucially, allow clients to get to know us. Drop ins provide a safe environment where clients can get advice, a hot meal, socialise with others, befriend our volunteers and often, when they’ve had a chance to settle, become volunteers themselves…
