Open door

The Open Door is a registered charity for ecumenical outreach. It offers support and companionship for older people and those with special needs in the local community, through clubs and a variety of activities. The café is open to the general public. Volunteers work shifts (2½hrs in the café or 4hrs in the clubs) on a weekly basis, or whenever suitable.

COVID19 – Due to the restrictions caused by COVID19, the services and activities at the Open Door have had to be curtailed.

However, staff have been in telephone contact with members offering comfort and a friendly chat. Members have welcomed and appreciated this contact and concern which has helped to dispel loneliness and isolation.
