The Homeless Drop-in

The Faith in Action Homeless Drop-in Centre is open every Wednesday and Friday 10:00am to 3pm.

Who is it for?

We welcome all rough sleepers, street users and the precariously housed, as well as those who are socially excluded, vulnerable and isolated or who have mental health or addiction issues.

What services are available?

Friendship and a warm welcome to all as soon as they enter our door is offered by the Drop-In. In addition, service users can obtain:

  • Breakfast, snacks and a home-cooked lunch
  • Shower and laundry facilities
  • Clothes and food parcels
  • Supported internet access, giving assistance with online registration forms, job and housing applications, and benefit claims
  • Help with access to local statutory and voluntary services such as the Community Drug & Alcohol Teams, Spear Housing, Street Rescue, and Merton Winter Night Shelters
  • Help in the search for work: assistance with putting together CVs, looking for jobs, and making online applications. And we help service users get the best out of the Government’s own jobs website Universal Jobmatch.
