Many of the volunteers at the Gatehouse have strong links with Oxford University, including a large number of students who help us to run sessions throughout the year.
In 2019 the Gatehouse was the recipient of an Oxford University Community Grant which helped pay towards the food and drink handed out to guests in our drop-in café. This is a cornerstone of the services provided to guests helping them in their daily struggle to survive.
Various individuals, colleges and departments within Oxford University also help in a wide variety of other ways from donations of money, clothes and other items through to help with the distribution of publicity materials.
All of the support from Oxford University is greatly appreciated and we hope to build on this relationship, and to continue to find new ways that Oxford’s homeless community can benefit from it in the future.
