Highway House is winner of the London Prestige Awards' Homeless shelter of the year 2019/20 and again for the year 2020/2021. Click here to read what the panel of Judges had to say.The Highway House Shelter is more than a homeless shelter. We are a shelter based in Tottenham, London that houses up to 35 men at a time. Since we opened our doors in 2009, almost 1000 people have been helped with shelter, food and counselling, along with the opportunity for much needed companionship with others.
We help those who have fallen on difficult times in their lives and need a helping hand. This includes those who are some of the most disenfranchised in our communities and without our help, would simply not be able to access other shelters in London. (including those with no recourse to public funds) many have lost contact with their families and friends. We work to help them rebuild their lives and rebuild their confidence.
The Highway House shelter work with a range of public services to ensure we are able to offer the fullest support to our residents. We are open to residents 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We work diligently with each person to ensure when they leave us they are ready to be independent once again and return to a full and fruitful life.Our Day Centre is open to the homeless every Tuesday and Friday from 12pm to 3pm (excepts bank holidays). The services provided are:
- Free hot meal, use of shower, phone charging facilities, internet access, talking with our support workers about various issues including: housing, benefits, healthcare, applications, jobs, ID documents etc
