One of the key services offered at the drop-in is the option for guests to have post delivered to them at the drop-in. For a street-homeless person without a fixed address, this provision opens up new opportunities to support their path out of homelessness. This might be in relation to a job application, receiving government documents, or even receiving post from loved ones.

We are looking for confident and empathetic people to join our team of volunteers. Come and be part of something special and help us to relieve poverty amongst street homeless people of West London.
