COVID-19 arrangements

Updated 5th November 2020

Please note that the November lockdown has not changed our current arrangements.

Our warehouse is open for food hub and starter pack collections by appointment.

You must wear a mask when collecting, and maintain social distancing of two metres. Please also contact us before visiting to book an approximate time so that we can manage footfall.

Our offices are closed to all visitors.

Acts435 referrals are now processed electronically, so you will not need to visit the offices (unless we have a specific alternative arrangement in place, in which case please follow the guidelines for starter packs above).

Our café remains closed for the foreseeable future.

As at the end of October, the guidance from the Government, Public Health England and Housing Justice (who look after the interests of night shelters such as ours) prevented us from opening our Winter Shelter. Even had the guidance been relaxed (which there were no signs of it being) we would not have had enough time to properly and safely plan a Winter Shelter so with regret we will not be operating as as usual this winter. We are looking at alternative plans to support people who find themselves homeless, working with the Council’s Homeless Outreach Partnership and other homeless charities across Bradford.

We have been running cooking workshops at our new venue, Jude’s Urban Kitchen, with appropriate social distancing restrictions (numbers limited to six per workshop and only one adult accompanying each participant). This year’s workshops are now finished and our next workshops are planned for February half term.

Please call the office with any queries on 01274 955010 (leave a message with your name and phone number if no answer and we’ll get back to you).

Please note that our warehouse, café and offices are restricted to visitors. More details
