With the weather turning colder

Homeless Link have produced a list of the emergency shelters that will be open in the capital this winter.

Updates may be made to this listing as the winter progresses and more information becomes available about some of the shelters.

The winter shelters are listed under the boroughs in which they operate, so some appear more than once. Crisis at Christmas operates a service across London, and is included as the first entry.  Some boroughs are not listed at all - Housing Justice may be able to advise on projects operating in these areas.
