Lighting the way to a better future.
Welcome to The Beacon Project.
We are a Day Centre in Mansfield that seeks to support the homeless, the excluded and the marginalised. If you would like to support us head over to our Support us page to find out more information.
What We Do
The Beacon Project began in St. John’s 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.
Our Opening Times
Tuesday & Friday for hot food & drink:
12pm-2pm with last entry / service at 1.30pm
Friday mornings for food parcels between 10.30am-11.15am
Saturday mornings through the Winter months from 10am-12pm.
We are also open 9:30am-1:30pm to accept donations on a Tuesday and a Friday. Please see our Support page for more information.
Support us with your time
As a charity, nearly all of our client-facing work is done by volunteers. We are always looking for more people to join our wonderful team. If you have time to give to our organisation, we would greatly appreciate it, and we offer support and training to all of our new volunteers.
Support us financially
As a Charity, we are completely reliant on financial support from Donors. If you are able to support us in this way we would really appreciate it and any amount is welcome
