English term or phrase:Drop-in centres
You do not need an appointment to be seen at drop-in centres, that is exactly why they are called "drop-in"; just come along and someone will see you within 15 minutes of your arrival.
These drop-in centres provide information, advice and support for roofless people and other homeless people. In addition, they offer meals and snacks (sometimes at a small cost), showers and changes of clothes. Some offer health advice from a nurse and a chiropody (foot health) service.
