Registered Charity Number: No.1165966
The NEWway Project was set up in 2013 in order to support the rising number of homeless people in the London Borough of Newham. Our team works alongside specialist support agencies, hundreds of local volunteers and churches across the borough to provide a winter night shelter and year round advocacy and daytime supports services for local rough sleepers.
7 churches take it in turns to host the shelter for one night each week throughout the winter months. Our teams of volunteers provide warm beds, hot meals and friendly company for up to 15 guests per night. Our Advocates work alongside these professionals to help secure permanent accommodation for the guests, so they do not have to return to rough sleeping on the street at the end of their 28-day stay. We also run a range of free daytime services (including free showers, laundry facilities, life skills workshops and employment support) to help our guests increase their resilience, health, independence and wellbeing.
