        We enjoy community partnerships with the following:

        Hanley Fire Station TRV team
        They work to make sure rough sleepers are sleeping safely, and often join us on a monday morning as well as helping us to raise vital funds!
        My Community Matters
        My Community Matters is a community led project working in Stoke-on-Trent to empower and connect local residents and public service workers, to develop effective community led neighbourhood partnerships to benefit the people who live and work in the area.
        The NHS Community Outreach Nurses attend every monday to run an open clinic.
        Marks and Spencer
        We are very well supported by donations from Marks and Spencer and again we would not be able to do what we do as a charity without them. We are incredibly grateful for their ongoing support and generosity.
        Sainsbury's Hanley
        We have a permanent collection box in store, and twice a week they generously provide bread and cakes for us to use at our drop ins. You can often find us in store doing food drives to raise awareness and say thank you to those who support us by giving donations regularly.
        Sainsburys have donated a full Christmas dinner and all the trimmings in the past to our substance free house this was gratefully received by the residents as you can imagine.
        Morrisons Hanley
        we are incredibly grateful for all the support that Morrison’s and its wonderful staff offer. We would not be able to distribute the huge amount of food that we do without their continued support and donations.
        Root 'N' Fruit
        A community allotment who have shared some of their produce with us, allowing us to give fresh fruit and vegetables out in our weekly food bags.
        Members of the Samaritans join us every week to provide a listening ear to those who attend both of our weekly drop-ins.
        Socks 'N' Chocs
        A project in Wednesbury who have generously provided us with numerous socks and sleeping bags to distribute to those who are in need.
        Wayne Walkers
        Our sausages and bacon come from here. Our fantastic breakfasts wouldn’t be the same without them and if anyone fancies making a donation to our Open Door drop ins, you are able to purchase vouchers that we can redeem at a later date.
        Stoke City
        Working alongside Stoke City's Community Trust, through their link with many local schools delivering PE, we have been able to provide breakfast cereal to thousands of children across the city and beyond. Early this year we partnered with them to run six 'Cook 4 Life' sessions.
        Stoke families in Need
        Is run by Jeff Sheldon - Gwinneth, he has been helping us out with children’s items when we have had requests and not been able to facilitate due to not having the items. He collects children’s items as well as distributing food throughout his local community to the vulnerable.
        Guinness Partnership
        We are fortunate enough to be able to work with the Guinness partnership (formally Wulvern) over in East Cheshire.
        We always receive a warm welcome from staff and residents alike while doing our monthly table top sales at Pickmere to generate extra funds to ensure that the projects continue to run.
        Boy’s Brigade
        We share the community allotment with the Boy's Brigade
        Ealing Foodbank
        These good people also make very generous donations to Open Door of surplus stock they have delivered.
        We use the donated food at the drop ins and in our food bank parcels that we distribute throughout Stoke on Trent.
        Brighter Futures
        We have a presence from the Rough Sleepers team at our Monday drop in at St Marks.
        They are a valuable asset to us, supporting and sign posting people who are sleeping rough.
        The team goes out daily looking for people who are sleeping rough.
        They then work with the person to get accommodation in a local hostel.
        If you know someone who is sleeping rough in the Stoke and Newcastle area please phone or pass this number on to them 0800 970 2304 or email info@brighter-futures.org.uk
        Voices work with people whose lives have been serious affected by long term events and conditions; such as drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and mental health conditions.
        They aim to support people with multiple needs and, like ourselves, those who feel like other services have given up on them.
        They also listen to the experiences of people with complex needs and work with organisations across the city to ensure the best possible outcomes are met for the individuals that use their service.
