Update to supporters on the Drop-in during the COVID-19 emergency.

Very reluctantly, we have had to close our Homeless Drop-In, following government instructions about social distancing. We will re-open as soon as we can.

Meanwhile, we are continuing to work with our street-sleeping service users and, if possible, to help them move into temporary hotel accommodation organised by the Greater London Authority.

For new street sleepers seeking help, there are notices outside the Drop-In and, shortly, in Wimbledon town centre giving the Faith in Action phone number (07843 280419) and website address; this information is also on our website.

We are continuing to pay our wonderful, dedicated staff in full, and also our rent to the Salvation Army, whose support we value. So, we continue to rely on your generous donations.

We’ll be posting any developments on our website www.mertonfaithinaction.org and on Twitter twitter.com/mertondropin

With best wishes and thanks for your continued support.
