London Winter Shelters list 2018/19 published
Blog posted by: Gareth Thomas, Friday, 2 November 2018.
The clocks have gone back and temperatures are starting to drop, and with London heading towards a cold snap at any time, we have produced a list of the emergency shelters that will be open in the capital this winter.
Updates will be made to this listing as the winter progresses and as and when any more information becomes available about some of the shelters.
The winter shelters are listed under all 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 won't be listed. This is because they don't have a winter shelter operating in the area. Housing Justice may be able to advise on any other projects in these areas.
The Homeless England website gives more details of the winter shelters, as well as other emergency accommodation, advice and support services for people experiencing homelessness across England.
