Seeking Homes for Young People

After the success of this winter's Shelter Me! Project, where 3,745 bed nights were taken up by young people, women and men in crisis, we want to take this concept further.

Why should people feel they are only worth a camp bed in a church hall as a home?

With Governmental and Borough Councils cuts and large Charities changign their focus and withdrawing services, we are going to see an increased need in alternatives to sleeping rough.

We need your help!!!

If you have or know of someone who has a large house (6 bedrooms approx), and they might like to work with us, we are wanting to set up a Youth Provision that offers opportunities and hope to young people 16 to 21 year olds.

The idea is a crash pad that people can stay for as long as they need.

For more information or to discuss the idea call Savvas on 07805 677-717 or e-mail him on

World Homeless Day 2010

New Report on homeless and rough sleeping has been complied by Pilion, during the 2010 campaign in Islington on World Homeless Day 2010.

We hope the comments and concerns of local residents, community members and the service users themselves may influence poisitively to rethink its policies on welfare state and the vulnerable.

The November freeze in London

As London is caught unawares of the coming "big freeze" Pilion's Shelter Me! project in partnership with the Cally Methodist Church open a new cold weather shelter. Local business and community volunteers spent weekends in early November revamping the church's crypt in time for a Christmas Shelter.

With the onset of the snow and sub-zero temperatures, decissions were made to open the shelter earlier and help save the homeless from freezing in the snow.

One homeless client stated that: the ambulance found him soaking wet in the Highbury Fields on Friday as he was suffering from Hypothermia. While in the ambulance he had to be revived 3 times. Tonight he thanked the staff, volunteers and Islington's Housing Aid Centre for saving his life.

The shelter will remain open while the cold weather remains and makes it hard for the homeless to remain on the streets.

If you are interested in helping out please call 020 7700-2601 or e-mail: and ask for Sheriff or Jackie.

World Homelessness Day 2010

This Sunday is a Global movement for World Homelessness. Over 10 countries around the world are participating. Small Groups, Chairities, Communities, artists etc are staging events around the World to bring people together to think, debate and discuss the issue of homelessness that has been worrying people for 100s of years and no lasting solutions have ever been found.

It doesn't matter what type of Government and political or religious sways have been able to find a solution.

Maybe it is up to each of us individually and collectively to find a way to bring people out of homelessness.

Friday the 8th October 2010 from 1pm to 4:30pm The Pilion Trust is hosting the pre-launch event at Islington Town Hall.

You are invited to come along and support the movement.

There will also be over 15 charities present to help you and advise you on things that concern you.

We look forward to seeing you there. For more details go to Wold Homelessness Day website.
