Volunteering at Cheltenham Open Door

Cheltenham Ladies' College students attend the centre and assist staff in food preparation and welcoming people using Open Door's services.

Aims of the project

The aim of this project is to support the aims of Open Door - namely, to assure the right of every person to food, companionship and shelter, whatever their situation in life. The charity identified a need for a place of refuge and shelter for those without certain lodging or income, and CLC students assist with creating such a place through their volunteering efforts.
