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.



As from Monday 22nd June the Gatehouse will be operating three separate service provisions to adults who are homeless or vulnerably housed.  

We will continue the food and drink delivery parcel service to the vulnerably housed and the practical provision for people who are currently temporarily housed (when needed). Thank you for all of the support from our donors and funders that enables this service to continue. 

We will also continue to deliver a bespoke remote one to one support service by a dedicated staff team to offer emotional and practical support for people who need it. 

Additionally, we will be opening a take away service under a very different operational model from the 22nd June 2020. This service will be available to adults who are not housed or currently in temporary accommodation (e.g. rough sleepers) on Monday – Thursday 5pm-6pm and Sunday 4pm-5pm from our usual venue at 10 Woodstock Road.

We will continue to ensure that all of our services will adapt to meet current Covid-19 Government guidance. If you would like more information please contact Kat at katrina@oxfordgatehouse.org
