Welcome to Newmarket Open Door

Since 1997, we have been providing supported housing and new opportunities for homeless and vulnerable young people in the Newmarket and Mildenhall area. Inspired and founded by a local Churches Together initiative, we partner with others to prevent homelessness and create opportunities.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to sustain and inspire people who are homeless to change their own lives by the provision of accommodation and support; to provide relief to persons experiencing poverty, hunger and physical and mental disability and to change perceptions and attitudes towards these people.

What we offer

Supported Housing

Portland House is a supported housing project based in Newmarket. We support young adults who have often experienced homelessness or difficult living circumstances. Our project supports vulnerable adults aged 16-24. Our project is a home that serves opportunities to move on to independent living.


Our large Charity superstore offers an exciting array of items including furniture, antiques, clothing, children and baby items, white good, records, DVD’s and CD’s, and so much more. Our charity superstore is a great place to volunteer, and is a great place to learn and grow your skills.


A local Foodbank which redistributes food and other household products to those in need and other charities, as well as running a Community Pop-Up Shop in conjunction with other charities and church organisations.
