Glass Door, ECI’s new charity partner

Read Time: Min

We’re delighted to announce our partnership with homeless charity Glass Door. Based in London, Glass Door provides night shelters for anyone who needs them during the coldest months of the year (Nov – April), offering a safe place to sleep and a nutritious meal, across the London boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Wandsworth – including the only women’s shelter in London.

Their shelters are open to all and not only provide a refuge, but also a route out of homelessness with the Glass Door casework service operating year-round, including having caseworkers at each shelter. The caseworkers get to know each individual “guest” and create a tailored plan to help them on their journey out of homelessness. They provide dedicated one-to-one support – liaising with other organisations to secure accommodation, help open a bank account, access healthcare or receive benefits (amongst other things).

Homelessness is a growing problem, especially in London – between October & December last year, 4,389 people were seen sleeping rough (up 23% on the previous year) – and we are looking forward to working with Glass Door over the coming months to raise funds for this essential cause.
