Bury Drop In serves people who are homeless and vulnerably housed. Our guests include the street homeless, rough sleepers, and ‘sofa-surfers.’  We also care for those in temporary accommodation (e.g. hotels and hostels) and people who were homeless but need some support to avoid falling back into homelessness. 

Launched in September 2015, we are a registered charity. ​Since starting out, the number of guests attending Bury Drop In has grown from around 5 guests to 60 guests per a session.




We rely heavily on our devoted team of volunteers, who come from all walks of life. Every role is different, from befriending guests to helping out at publicity events. You do not need any experience of volunteering, all we ask of you is that you are over 18, and are compassionate, friendly and reliable. All of our volunteers are provided with ongoing training and support, and the opportunity to shadow current volunteers so that you can find out what role suits you best.
