Open Doors is a new community hub in the heart of Kilmarnock town centre which provides a safe place where people can access a wide range of activities and supports aimed at providing health and social benefits, improving life chances and signposting to opportunities within the community.
Open Doors will not only further the priorities identified by the community but offer much-needed community-led activities. This joined-up approach to service delivery within a one-stop facility would ensure maximum use of existing resources and improved accessibility to service provision.
The Community Hub is also working in partnership with the Police Scotland in Kilmarnock and our Drop-In Sessions are available to support those involved with criminal justice or with addiction issues.
The Open Doors team will offer intensive holistic support and engagement designed to help people overcome loneliness and isolation, promote inclusion and remove barriers to engagement and community involvement.
Open Doors Community Hub will provide valuable access to services within the local community including:
Training and learning opportunities
Community Café and Food Pantry
Meeting space for community organisations and partner agencies
Youth and Justice support
Homelessness services and supports
Advice sessions and drop-in support
Homeless health support
Walking Group (every Wednesday from 2pm at Dean Park, Kilmarnock) See News post >>
