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 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 forty 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 health practitioner 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.


Tuesdays : 12-1.00pm

Hot Meals & Drinks

Fridays: 12-1.00pm

Hot Meals & Drinks and Food/clothes parcels 

We are also open between 10am and 2pm on Tuesdays and Fridays to accept donations, please see our donations page for more information.
