We provide day long support for homeless and vulnerably housed people wanting to move forward in their lives, away from street-life and addiction.

Our mission is to help, in a totally non-discriminatory way, homeless, recently re-housed homeless or vulnerably housed people.

We encourage our service users (our members) to tackle the issues that prevent them from moving forward towards a more positive lifestyle. Our focus is upon support and nurture, along with challenge.

We concentrate upon housing, health, wellbeing, education and employment. We provide healthy food, practical help, companionship, learning skills, work related skills and opportunities for development.

 

The Porch is delighted to announce
the publication of our new book:

 

not any old porch

A story of support and encouragement for Oxford’s homeless and
vulnerably housed men and women – from 1985 to 2020”

Oxford Hub
Hillsong Church Oxford have so generously collected donations from their congregation, and created Christmas & Easter hampers for some of the people that Oxford Hub have been supporting since the start of the pandemic. They have extended this incredible offer again this year, and are making up hampers to deliver to some of those vulnerable people within Oxford who may need a pick-me up during the festive period. Thank you so much to Craig Hillsong Church for spreading festive cheer again! And a big shout-out to other community organisations in Oxford who are bringing festive cheer to people around the city, including Oxford Mutual Aid Oxford Community Action The Porch Day Centre and many more 🌟[ID: two people standing in front of a Christmas tree holding presents] ...

We've just launched our Christmas appeal - "Leave a Light On". We would love you to help us by supporting our centre over the Christmas period and allowing us to stretch our resources to help even more vulnerable people. Please take a look... https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/LeaveALightOn

Our supporters have raised the funds for the kitchen area and now we're hoping to raise the £18,500 needed to install a platform lift and make all Porch services wheelchair accessible! See the link for updates... thanks from The Porch.
