Welcome to the NEWdawn Project night shelter
The NEWdawn Project night shelter normally runs for 5 months between October and March. Due to Covid19 restrictions we have had to find an alternative and this year we are able to offer shelter in 15 spaces at a local hotel.
Helping homeless people with a Newham connection. We are a low needs shelter with a maximum of 15 beds for a period of 28 nights.
Guests are served a hot meal, given friendly company and a safe, warm place to sleep. We are also able to offer 1-2-1 advocacy for all guests, delivered by our trained advocates. Guests are assisted in securing more long-term accommodation as well as being supported with overcoming barriers and moving out of their situation.
This is not a drop in shelter. For an assessment you will need to be referred by NEWday centre. Click here to make a booking. Please understand that places are limited and we may be full.
For those experiencing immediate homelessness please call Streetlink for help seeking shelter.
You will be asked to describe your location, so please have the road name and nearest house number to hand.
Over the past seven years, we have opened on 976 nights and provided 12,173 beds to 575 guests. Our volunteers have served 24,695 hot meals and our advocates have helped 312 people to stay permanently away from the streets.
