Welcome to the Friary

We empower homeless and disadvantaged adults to rebuild their lives by providing practical services, advice and emotional support.

The current advice is to "only go outside for food”, but what if you’re homeless?

We’re a local charity delivering frontline services to homeless people during the Covid-19 pandemic and have permission to stay open.  The best way to support the Friary today is to give financially so we stay open at our Just Giving page.

For the vulnerable people we know, the Friary will provide a food delivery service.

To provide food and essential support during the Coronavirus pandemic, our Friary Drop-in Centre will be open:

Monday – Friday

09.00 – 12.00 each day
We are offering a limited but practical at the door drop-in service daily by giving out food, clothes, essential items and providing welfare support. Please respect the social distancing advice when you arrive. Please only attend our drop-in Centre if essential.

Saturday – Closed

Sunday – Closed

Emergency Accommodation to enable safer living during the Coronavirus pandemic is currently available to people who are homeless or rough sleeping, through a new scheme set up by Nottingham City Council, call our number: 0115 982 5448 for advice.

We are:

  • Distributing food
  • Providing emotional support to isolated people.
  • Enabling welfare support under extreme circumstances (helping people claim benefits)
  • Providing information about Covid-19 and updating on government guidelines with individuals unable to be on social media
  • Providing a service to those recently made homeless
  • Following current government guidelines for their own safety and the safety of the homeless, but there is still some risk, as in all frontline settings right now

We still need your help to feed and safeguard the homeless during this pandemic. You can do so by donating here.

Because at present we have a good stock of food and access to fresh produce from local outlets, we ask you to save food donations for later in the pandemic, so we can manage the receipt and collections in the safest way. We will update you as the situation changes. Thank you.

Need help or support?

Our open access drop-in sessions operate from 9.00am – 1.00pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Additional sessions for rough sleepers are available 8.30am – 11.00am every Tuesday and Thursday
