Friday 6th November: the RESTART drop-in is able to open during lockdown.
We are offering a combination of sit-in meals and takeaways. There will be limited space inside for rough sleepers and homeless guests.
We are a small, London-based charity whose objective is to support homeless people to overcome the challenges of life ‘on the streets’. Our staff and volunteers assist guests in securing accommodation, finding employment, improving social relationships, mental health and well-being, and developing the confidence and readiness to return to independent living.
