What we do

We provide

...a welcome respite of shelter and hospitality that allows the charity to work intensively with the client to break the cycle of homelessness and achieve sustainable tenancies. Our shelters currently operate between December and March each year.

We do not take self referrals

We work with

...many local, regional and national agencies to ensure we can have the maximum impact of our services for our clients. We work closely with The Local Authority, Housing associations and substance and alcohol misuse agencies in our areas.

Only recognised agencies can refer

Our shelters

...are currently in 13 locations in Haringay and Enfield where we offer up to 12 bed spaces per night during the winter months. Guests are offered laundry, clothing and washing facilities and showers,as well as dinner and breakfast.

Drugs and alcohol are forbidden

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 of the necessities, bedding, clothing, food, as well as hard cash.

£10 will buy bedding for one of our guests
£20 buys a camp bed to provide a comfortable night's sleep
£50 provideos a move-on pack of basic appliances and utensils
