Rough Sleeper Breakfast Service
Our rough sleeper breakfast service operates every Tuesday in Barnstaple next to the bus station. Between 8am and 10am we open exclusively to anyone who is rough sleeping. Supported by our dedicated team of volunteers we provide a cooked breakfast and hot drinks to those in need.
Our service is more than just a breakfast we are also able to offer the following:
- Clean clothing and shoes
- Access to a variety of other local services such as the outreach team and drug and alcohol services
- Advice from a trained nurse around a variety of health related issues
- Food parcels
- Takeaway homemade food and soup
- A friendly ear, ready to listen
From 10am onwards we open our doors to anyone who is in need, this can be people who feel isolated, living in poverty or struggling with money and debt, our experienced adviser can provide support on issues such as:
- Help with form filling
- Welfare benefits advice
- Signposting services
We rely on local fundraising and volunteers to be able to offer this service, we are always looking for new people to support us and would love to hear from you if you would like to be part of this great team.
“It was nearly 15 years ago since I had a cooked breakfast, not many services open early enough so this is brilliant. We are made to feel welcome and can get help on lots of other things… it’s so much more than just a breakfast.”
