Joe’s Place, in the heart of Gateshead, opens its doors every Wednesday to support some of the most vulnerable people in the area, including those who are homeless, have little or no money, are living with addiction or have mental health issues.
Run by a team of dedicated volunteers Joe’s Place is a drop-in with a difference, offering table service and a choice of free, hot and cold food and refreshments from a varied menu.
As well as food and shelter, the volunteers also provide friendly conversation and a listening ear and are able to signpost anyone in need of additional support to agencies and organisations able to help. However, the main purpose of Joe’s Place is to be a warm, welcoming, friendly place where anyone in need can call in and feel at home.
