SleepOut in 2022!

On Friday 18 November, RESTART will be holding its annual SleepOut. We’re inviting you to join us, sleep out and raise funds and awareness for homelessness across London.


Our drop-in provides a hot meal, chat, advice and support for those in need. Join us on Friday nights (6.30pm-8.30pm) in Knightsbridge.
