Over the past 8 years, our shelter opened on 892 nights and provided 10,870 beds to 520 guests. Our volunteers have served 21,984 hot meals and our advocates have helped 224 people to move into accommodation and away from the streets.


Our night shelter is now closed for 2020/2021.

For those who are homeless, they should firstly call London StreetLink on 0300 500 0914 or go online by clicking hereYou will be asked to describe your location, so please have the road name and nearest house number to hand.


Over winter we support homeless people with a London Borough of 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.

Please be aware that 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.
