Ilford Sunday Drop in for the Homeless
Set up by local Catholic churches, in 1961 but now with volunteers of all faiths and none - we operate every Sunday providing a hot meal, drinks and a safe warm space and informal support for homeless or people who are struggling financially.
The main aim of the service is to alleviate hunger and provide a safe space to go when other services are closed, providing respite from wandering the streets all day. We offer a healthy hot meal, soup, sandwiches, drinks plus, when available , donated toiletries, clothes, shoes and sleeping bags. We can offer food bank vouchers and signpost to other services.
We need volunteers to help set up and run the service.
