We are reaching out to the rough sleepers, homeless people, and disadvantaged groups in Westminster
In addition to the soup kitchen at the Strand, we cover the area around Westminster Station giving out face masks, hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, and snacks. We also help with signposting vulnerable individuals to services. We provide encouragement and support. In the last two years Refuge Network has celebrated Christmas with service users in the area handing out hundreds of individual festive gift items.
