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.

PDF is allowed on a download.

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.
