Glass Door was featured in the “Local Heroes” section of Sloane Square Magazine’s January 2024 issue. The article, “A doorway to safety”, goes into detail on the negative mental and physical effects of rough sleeping, as well as Glass Door’s work, which it describes as “a shining example of hope”.

It mentions Glass Door’s 2023 Christmas Appeal film narrated by Colin Firth, which, as the article says, “tells the story of some of those individuals who find themselves homeless, reminding us that beyond the statistics and commentaries lie very human realities”.

The article also quotes senior caseworker Gemma on one example of what would lead someone to come to Glass Door for support:

Within 48 hours, you can be asked to leave if you haven’t paid your rent. If you don’t have friends you can sofa surf with, eventually you’re calling us.
