A message about Open Door’s services during Covid-19
During to the current Covid 19 outbreak, our priority is for the safety of our guests, volunteers and staff.
To prevent our guests gathering outside, even for takeaway meals, we have now made the decision to CLOSE Open Door from Tuesday 24th March. We will reopen when government advice changes and will post updates here.
In the meantime, guests in high-risk categories will be able to have food parcels delivered. See our “Welcome” page for details.
Donations of items:
As a result of our closure, we will ONLY be able to take donations of dried goods suitable for food parcels, for example:
- Tinned fruit, meat, vegetables, rice pudding
- Instant noodles
- UHT milk
- Chocolate, biscuits, chewy bars, etc.
We CANNOT take donations of:
- Fresh food*
- Frozen food*
- Catering-sized food of any type*
- Street kit
- Blankets, duvets, housewares
- Clothes etc.
