The Drop In

The Drop In is our day centre and is home to Minnie’s Kitchen, hosted from the Falcon Centre, Loughborough and through community hubs around the county.

The principles of the day centre are open access and the removal of barriers to support, ensuring service users have a realistic chance to break the cycle of homelessness and reduce social isolation.

We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, accepted, valued and not to be judged for any situations they may be facing and should have access to basic needs, housing, advice, support and opportunities to create a better everyday life. Our approach is to never give up on inspiring change in vulnerable people.

The Drop In supports vulnerable people by:

  • Meeting immediate needs for those in crisis and rough sleeping, including shower facilities, toiletries, use of a washing machine, clothes donations, care of address for mail.
  • Providing breakfast and lunch through Minnie's Kitchen Monday - Friday 9.30am - 1.30pm.
  • Reducing health inequalities and use of emergency services by providing access to health care through GP registrations, a health care assistant and ad-hoc opticians and hairdressers
  • Pro-active action to end rough sleeping by providing an open access service with specialist support including housing, benefits, mental health and substance misuse
  • Opportunities to inspire change, including access to education, training, employment, volunteering, as well as providing a programme of meaningful activities such as arts, sport, cooking and workshops in independent living and tenancy sustainment skills
