W.H Five Loaves ltd

Mission Statement
We believe in the inherent dignity of every person, proactively addressing and meeting the needs of the homeless and disadvantaged, in a spirit of compassion and hospitality, with the hope of making a difference in their lives.

Following some research and responding to local problems, an acute need for a drop in centre for homeless and marginalised was identified and W.H Five Loaves opened its doors in February 2004.

Our day care service is located at 5 Albert Walk Bray and features routinely as a source of support in the lives of many vulnerable people and continues to provide a high quality service in order to improve the health and wellbeing of those we serve.

The Centre opens five days per week, Monday to Friday from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. We assist and encourage our clients by providing them with the individual care and help best suited to their specific situation while ensuring their nutritional, housing and social needs are met. We also encourage our service users to connect with other health and welfare services.

W.H. Five Loaves rely heavily on fundraising to maintain the operation of the Charity. Despite the economic downturn and increased requests for help, we have been greatly encouraged by the generosity shown in terms of volunteers, financial assistance, stocks for our food pantry and donations of clothing for both our service users and charity shop. Our efforts, backed by the generosity of people have brought welcome results and help to make our mission statement become a reality. Although we may be faced with challenges during the coming year, we will endeavour to remain dedicated to our mission.


W.H. Five Loaves is a Homeless and Disadvantaged Charity in the Bray, Wicklow area. We operate our Day Centre at 52c Main Street Bray. Beside the Bray Credit Union. In the centre you are provided with two hot meals, breakfast and dinner, with Tea/Coffee and snacks served throughout the day.
