The Basement Drop-in

Normal opening hours:

Monday 12 (noon) until 3 pm,
Tuesday to Friday 12 (noon) until 4pm

You don’t need an appointment – just DROP-IN!

When you come to the drop-in, our team of friendly staff and volunteers will be there to assist you in any way they can.

From advice and information to a cup of tea and an informal chat, the Basement drop-in is a MUST if you think homelessness is or maybe something that affects YOU.

  • We’ll give you time and advice.
  • If we can’t help we may know someone who can.
  • Speak to our youth workers and share your problems in confidence.
  • Use our stuff!
  • We have shower, laundry and basic cooking facilities.

How to find us:

We are in the Basement of the Baptist Church in New Road in the town centre. Look for a set of steps between the front car park and the main church building.


As well as providing support the basement runs regular workshops to provide young people with various skills.

Our workshops our very informal and are fun to do …more.
