The Kingfisher Café

The Kingfisher Cafe for the Homeless is based in Bridlington and looks after the homeless and needy in our area.


We provide a safe, warm and friendly cafe which is centrally located. When the pandemic started the Trustees made the decision to open as a takeaway so that we could continue giving our clients the care and attention that they needed. We have subsequently reopened as a Cafe, but still offer a takeaway service for those who require it. We now employ a full time kitchen manager who overseas that running of the kitchen and the work of the volunteers.


We work together with the local churches and other agencies and we provide clothing, sleeping bags, toiletries and other necessities. We cooperate with the local police, probation office and the council. We also have very good relationships with the local community and businesses who all make donations.


We provide:

  • breakfast on five days per week;
  • hot evening meals on three nights per week and a Sunday lunch;
  • a ‘pack-up’ of a sandwich with either fruit, biscuit or cake;
  • a flask of tea or coffee.

Meals are provided each week for 52 weeks per year. We source, prepare and serve approximately 10,000 meals per year.


We improve the lives of the people we support by helping them with completing forms and job applications, passing on donated clothes and household goods, linking with other support agencies, allowing them to claim benefits through the use of our address and staying in contact with their families.
