Colne Open Door.

Support Service

The Centre provides a safe, nurturing and friendly environment for individuals experiencing a vulnerable time in their lives. Customers can enjoy quality low-cost nutritious food and can take the opportunity to make new friends. Our main aims and objectives are to provide:

• A drop-in service offering support, help, guidance, coaching and sign-posting to meet the needs of the poor and those marginalised by society with a view to improving their quality of life;

• A community café/meeting place, which can be used by everyone, serving cheap, home-made nutritious meals which provides a non-threatening, non-judgemental environment in which we can achieve our stated objectives;

• Free internet access for everyone to assist in the search for employment and provide the opportunity for social interaction;

• A non-threatening venue to accommodate training, counselling, mediation and other activities beneficial to our community.

We also aim to:

• Improve community cohesion

• Encourage local community groups, statutory organisations, voluntary organisations, local people, and marginalized people to use our café to improve community cohesion and relieve isolation

• Enhance employment opportunities through the provision of volunteering, training, work experience and community service
