The Roost is YCC’s outreach project to the homeless population of Yeovil and surrounding areas. We want to see transformation in our town and believe this starts with its people. We have a full-time outreach team, making our presence known within the street community and amongst the ‘hidden homeless’ population, offering personal and practical support for individuals navigating their way through the systems and back to stability.

We believe Jesus told us to care for those in need, and serve others wholeheartedly. We want to make a difference in the lives of everyone we encounter, and believe that the small things are just as important as the big things.

Whether it’s overcoming addiction, finding accommodation, or simply having a bite to eat, we’re here Monday – Friday to help people find and take their next steps.

Our Drop-Ins

We run the Roost Drop-In service twice a week (Wednesday and Friday, 10am-2pm). Here, you will find a brilliant team of staff and volunteers ready to welcome you. The drop-in is a one-stop-shop for all you might need – whether it’s getting breakfast and lunch, accessing a range of medical clinics that we host on a weekly basis, or just coming to spend time and charge your phone; at The Roost, each person is valued,
