The DCC Centre Salop St Dudley Dy1 3AT
In 2007/8 Dudley Community Church purchased the pub that is adjacent to the church. (The Present DCC Centre) It offered a large space downstairs with a kitchen, toilets and storage space and upstairs were four rooms, a toilet and kitchenette.
The Church were then able to expand its community activities and a soup kitchen (Heavens Kitchen) was set up running on a Monday evening and Saturday morning with over 100 different people now attending weekly.;
In 2009 it was felt that people coming to the soup kitchen required emotional support aswell as having their physical needs met and a counselling/support service was provided in the rooms upstairs a couple of days a week. And at this point Dudley Counselling Centre came into being and the services and activities it now provides include:
We serve a three course meal to up to 80 people every week and a full English breakfast every Saturday monring.
Community Support Worker 2 days and one evening a week where people can get advocacy support, benefits advice, access to use telephones and computers; drug and alcohol related advice and referrals to dedicated drug and alcohol teams and emotional support.
The DCC Centre also providers of food vouchers for the Food Bank scheme.
Counselling for both adults and children.
