Local London charity Glass Door has launched an appeal to give people living on the streets a room, meals and access to professional assistance over Christmas and the coming winter months. ‘This year we have witnessed an increase in the numbers turning to us who are at risk of becoming homeless,’ says CEO, Lucy Horitz.
‘We will do all we can to prevent that from happening. But for those who have no other option, Glass Door is able to offer a warm, safe place to stay.’ The charity is running an ‘ownroom’ accommodation service which provides individual rooms – guests can stay 24 hours a day, seven days a week – for about 55 people.
The project, which is being run in partnership with LHA London, launched on 15 November and will run until early May. The cost for a room and three meals is £32 a day and guests are supported by caseworkers and helped to find routes out of homelessness.
