Working together

On the 10th October CityKitchen went on the road and supported the opening of Birmingham’s first permanent night shelter for the homeless.

Father Hudson’s Care opened Tabor House for the very first time on the 10th October and CityKitchen supported the opening of the centre by providing a celebratory buffet for all of the guests. To mark the opening of this new facility, the launch event was held at St Anne’s RC Church in Digbeth – to coincide with World Homeless Day.

Tabor House aims to:

  • Ensure each person using the service is kept warm and safe through the night

  • Provide person centred pre-engagement support through a mentoring, befriending, information and support; better enabling engagement with support services leading to rehabilitation, more permanent accommodation, and eventually, independent living

  • Strive for best practise in every area so that the services delivered can be effective

CityKitchen provided food for 100 guests, including Mayor Andy Street, representatives from the West Midlands Police, homelessness specialists and local press.

Brain Cape, Business and Commercial Development manager said “This is a fantastic facility and will give a sufficient boost to the citizens of Birmingham who need support. Cityserve are proud to support such an important cause and we look forward to seeing Tabor House in full use.”
