The Gatehouse offers free support for adults aged 25+ who are homeless, vulnerably housed, on low income and/or looking for company and community.

Normal operating hours for our free café are Monday – Friday 5.00-7.00 pm, Sundays 4.00-6.00pm, at the St Giles Parish Rooms, 10 Woodstock Road, near the centre of Oxford. (map it) There are also therapeutic workshops on two evenings a week, and one to one sessions on Friday afternoons from noon to 3pm where guests can book an appointment to discuss their personal situation with Gatehouse project workers and receive information and guidance.



From Wednesday 25th March 2020, the Gatehouse has made the decision to close our food and drink take away service until further notice. Regretfully this decision had to be made in light of the Coronavirus covid-19 crisis and the need to safeguard our guests, volunteers and staff in relation to adequate social distancing protocol. Our community drop-in centre is, until further notice, completely closed down.

We are currently working to find a different model for food delivery, so please watch this space. We hope to be able to post an update on this soon. 

We will still need our staff, volunteers, food groups and donors so please continue to support the charity. 

Thank you to everyone for all the support we have received during these difficult times. We do genuinely work in a wonderful community!  

Andrew Bunch (Chair of Trustees) & Kat Horne (Project Director
