In a year with many challenges, Glass Door managed to keep their doors open throughout the pandemic and supported more people out of homelessness than ever before.
Based in London, Glass Door coordinates the UK’s largest network of open-access services for people affected by homelessness. Since 1999, thousands of men and women have found safe shelter and the support needed to leave homelessness behind, thanks to the dedication of thousands of volunteers and partnerships formed with churches and drop-in centres. Glass Door night shelters save lives and its support services help change lives.
The charity’s 2020-2021 annual report has been published and can be viewed here.
It tells the story of how staff, partners and volunteers shifted ways of working to allow people experiencing homelessness to continue to find a safe place to stay, to enjoy hot meals and to access advice to move off the streets.
