Drop-in Centre Team Member

A team member at Open Door works on the front line welcoming homeless and vulnerable people into our drop-in centre. Together with their team, they are responsible for serving food and drink as well as listening to the needs of guests and responding appropriately. There are plenty of opportunities for building meaningful relationships with our regulars.


The most important skill required is non judgmental listening. All team members must be part of a local church. It is not a very physical role but team members should expect to be on their feet whilst serving food and drink. Training is provided regularly in areas such as food safety, first aid, safeguarding and de-escalation.
