The Gatehouse is a community drop-in centre offering free support services for adults who are homeless, vulnerably housed, on low income and looking for company and community. They offer a free cafe six times a week, therapeutic workshops and a one-to-one casework team.
OCF is seeking to award grants around tackling the causes of homelessness or supporting move-on housing. These will be funded from our Community Resilience Fund, set up during the pandemic. Rough sleepers were brought into emergency accommodation during the last year’s various lockdowns. As this provision comes to an end, OCF is keen to support work that prevents a return to the streets.
