Red Door

Red Door is a Caritas project supporting homeless and vulnerable people in our friendly and welcoming base at St Joseph’s presbytery in central Bury.

Since the start of the Covid pandemic we have remained open, adjusting our services in line with Government guidance. We continue to offer food parcels, support and advice to people in need in Bury.  We help people with the provision of essential food items, support clients with benefit applications and appeals, assist with housing applications and tenancy issues. We also help clients in other areas, such as accessing appropriate health care, setting up bank accounts, arranging and attending essential appointments.

We are open Monday 10 am – 1 pm  – Hot food, takeaway lunch, food parcels, support and advice

Thursday 10 am – 1 pm – Hot food, takeaway lunch, support and advice, food parcels, support and advice

Friday 10 am – 12 pm – Food parcels, support and advice

Showers and laundry facilities are available by arrangement.   

Our services include:

  • On Mondays a hot soup and packed lunch to take away
  • Food parcels, containing a range of essential store cupboard and fresh itemsl
  • Laundry facilities
  • Shower facilities
  • Used clothes store
  • Help with household items
  • A dedicated team of support staff
  • Appointments for individual support and advice
  • Signposting to and liaison with other services
  • Support with rehousing applications and sustaining tenancies

Red Door is operating as a takeaway service currently, due to Government guidance, we cannot offer the open door drop in, full day opening or the activities that were previously available.

With our wonderful team of staff and volunteers, we are planning to further develop these services over the coming months, with the help of our much valued supporters. If you would like to know more about the work we do please feel free to contact us for more information, or even to arrange a visit.
