Who we are
For 5 years, The Open Arms have been providing a cooked meal, changes of clothing, bedding, toiletries and some food for the week ahead to anyone who comes along to Presentation House on a Sunday from 5-7pm
We welcome as many as 50 visitors who are mainly homeless or in sub-standard accommodation. Some welcome a chance to chat with one of our 40 volunteers, who operate in teams. Others meet up with their friends. All are appreciative of the Open Arms hospitality.
We are growing more and more concerned about the numbers of our visitors who are falling foul of the ‘system’ and, with reduced benefits, finding themselves without sufficient money to manage.
