Who are Dewsbury Community Outreach?

Dewsbury Community Outreach is a Christian charity based at 74 Daisy Hill, Dewsbury. We are a group of Christians from various local churches who have come together to help the vulnerable and less fortunate in our community by providing practical, emotional and spiritual support in a loving and caring environment.

Our Aims:

To create a community where everyone is welcome, valued as individuals, and supported with their needs. Where people can meet to share their skills or learn new ones, and where there’s always the chance to talk about the important things in life or simply to have a cuppa.

Our Building:

Was built in the 1800’s as the manse for the adjacent Methodist Church but more recently was the local Methodist Resource Centre. The church building next door is now the Elim Church in Dewsbury and although we are independent of the church, they are key partners in the charity.
