Welcome to The Beacon Project
The Beacon is a Day Centre which gives support to the homeless, excluded and marginalized in Mansfield.
We are a voluntary organisation and are entirely reliant on donations, grants and gifts of food.
The Beacon Project began in 2001 in St. Johns Church, Mansfield, when five homeless people came into our church for tea and toast. We now have a dedicated building and serve and care for up to fifty people on a regular basis.
We are committed to caring for the spiritual, physical, mental, social and emotional well being of all people who come to the Beacon centre for help.
We aim to provide a welcoming and safe place where people can get a hot meal, clean clothes and access to toilet and shower facilities. We have a nurse who runs a drop in session once a week and representatives from Framework and Mansfield council who can offer support with finding accommodation and applying for benefits.
