The Open Door (Taunton) : Charity No. 1122040

Open Door is based 1A Mount Street near the Taunton town centre and provides meals, drinks, showers and laundry facilities for homeless and disadvantaged people. The centre offers a listening ear and helps with advice and signposting to services in the area. We have a lot of volunteers and a Project Worker who help the Manager run the centre. We aim to provide unconditional support to those who visit Open Door. The project is supported by individuals, local churches, schools, charities and Taunton Deane B.C..

Work of Open Door

Every day we help people who have no permanent home.
When people first arrive at the centre we ask about their situation to see how Open Door can help them in their particular circumstances.

We are assisted by professionals from partner organisations to find suitable temporary accommodation;more permanant solutions may take days or weeks and sometimes even longer . We have a store of clothing, footwear and bedding which helps with their immediate needs.

Volunteers provide a nourishing breakfast and lunch and help visitors to research housing and occupation possibilities. When our clients move to their new homes we help them with basic items they need.

Thank you for your interest in the work of The Open Door (Taunton)
