The Upper Room

The Upper Room is a front line charity working with socially and economically disadvantaged people from some of the most deprived areas of London. We work with people who are experiencing homelessness – including those at risk of homelessness, providing them with food, clothing, toiletries and a safe and warm environment in the short-term, while providing support to help them rebuild their lives in the long-term. We help ex-offenders avoid re-offending by improving their employment chances through learning to drive and engaging in personal development training and voluntary sector volunteering as a form of restorative justice. We support destitute migrants and other disadvantaged groups to improve their employability and enter into sustainable employment by providing them with skills development training, job search support and by carrying out employer engagement to generate job opportunities.

Alerting services about rough sleepers

StreetLink is a website that enables the public to alert local authorities in England and Wales about people sleeping rough in their area.

This service offers the public a means to act when they see someone sleeping rough, and is the first step someone can take to ensure rough sleepers are connected to the local services and support available to them.
