What we do


...a welcome respite of shelter and hospitality across 16 venues in two boroughs - Enfield and Haringey with 12 bed spaces per night in each borough. Our shelters currently operate between December and April each year. Each venue offers an evening meal, bed and breakfast. We harness an average of 15,000 voluntary hours.

We work with recognised agencies can refer. We do not take self referrals

Case working

...Our professional casework offers the opportunity for APAP to work intensively with our guest to break the cycle of homelessness and achieve sustainable tenancies.

Drugs and alcohol are forbidden

Our impact

...Each year we help an average of 50 guests. We take people with or without recourse to public funds, e.g. benefits. Most of our guests engage with us, but a few are not ready or able to do so.
During 2016-17, we helped 49 guests across both boroughs. 35 guests were helped with positive outcomes of accommodation (70%).

70% guests assisted with accomodation

What is our aim?

The objective of the charity is to break the cycle of homelessness for our clients and enable them to improve their lives and reintegrate into mainstream society. As well as warmth and shelter: we offer assistance in the following areas to help our guests break the cycle of homelessness

  • A casework service – offering advice, advocacy and practical support to help find solutions to homelessness.
  • Assist in providing move on accommodation and move on packs of food and bedding.
  • Coordinate support and signposting to health and wellbeing services.

We regularly achieve tenancies for more than 70% of our clients

What we need

The bottom line is being homeless costs money. This is why we welcome donations towards the cost of providing the professional case workers, travel costs for guest appointments with caseworkers, healthcare processionals and benefit offices and the costs of re homing packs of basic appliances and utensils.

Making it happen

All People All Places relies on over 400 volunteers across the area to run each of the three shifts required to run a night shelter. We always need more. For more information please contact: info@allpeopleallplaces.org
