Bury Drop In aims to provide a safe place for the homeless and those with housing needs in Bury St Edmunds. We provide warm food, friendship, and introductions to various local agencies and support groups ranging from health to housing. 

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 provide support from welcoming guests to serving food, at every session.

While we are a Christian-based organisation, our services are open to all​.

Data Protection Officer Required

We are looking to fill this role as soon as possible, as our current volunteer would like to take a step down to focus on their other role with the Bury Drop In.

Full training and ongoing support will be provided.

For more information, please send an email to: 

Food Collection

We require a volunteer to collect donated food each week. This role involves sorting the food out at the store and bringing to the Drop In at Trinity Methodist Church every Tuesday morning. For more information, please send an email to:

We are urgently in need of more volunteers, especially befrienders. We invite all of our prospective volunteers to one of our sessions before you commit, so that you can get a real feel for what we do. If you are already sure that you want to volunteer with us, visit our website to download our online application form.ury Drop In is an independent charity created for the homeless and vulnerable members of our town. It is supported by several local churches as well as a number of local authority agencies specializing in the needs of this often-neglected group of people.
