Service Overview

The Bridge began its work in Leicester in 2009 in order to provide a safe and non-judgemental service to the homeless and vulnerably housed. Our vision throughout this time has been that all in Leicester will have a place to call home and hope for the future. The provision of hot meals remains the backbone of The Bridge. We provide lunch on Tuesdays and Sundays, and a two-course hot meal on a Thursday evening. We also provide a breakfast service 6 days per week. However, our guests also have access to showers and laundry services, clothing and toiletries, a 6-month long mentoring service, advice on a range of areas including but not limited to housing, benefits and finances, health and well-being, and employment related issues.

Who Is This Service For?

People sleeping rough, hostel residents and those who are vulnerably housed.
