Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will be looking to continue using a ‘static model’ this coming shelter season. This means that the guests will have their own rooms and will remain in one venue for the full duration of their stay with us. Guests are referred to GrowTH by Tower Hamlets based referral agencies, such as a local GP surgery and a day centre. While the guests stay in the shelter they will receive resettlement help from our employed Advocate Workers in securing permanent accommodation

Because spiritual support is so important, guests will also have the opportunity to take part in optional short Bible studies, receive prayer, or a simple chat if they wish to. 

Here's what some guests said about the shelter last season:

The volunteers were amazing. Always available if you needed something or a chat

GrowTH is a partnership of churches across Tower Hamlets and beyond from a variety of denominations and backgrounds, brought together to serve our guests. It is a privilege to work with all our partners including:
