Join our 2021 Sleepout

On Friday 19 November, the RESTART team and others will be sleeping outside on the pavement in London for one night to raise awareness and much-needed funds. We’re looking for people up for a challenge to join us, sleep out and help us RESTART Lives.

Our Drop-in is open

Our Friday drop-in is fully open: we are no longer serving takeaway meals but are glad to now be welcoming everyone indoors, who would like to, for a hot, sit-down meal.
