Robes Project

The Robes Project is a volunteer-run homeless charity operating in Southwark and Lambeth. We offer a warm welcome and hospitality to those who find themselves homeless in our volunteer-run winter night shelter, as well as holistic support services to our homeless guest.

• Over the winter of 2016/17, we have hosted more than 80 guests in our night shelter

What makes Robes Project different

We welcome homeless people as our guests, offering so much more than just a warm bed and two meals a day. Through our amazing volunteers, we offer true hospitality and friendship, complemented by a professional advice service to help our guests move onto

David, our guest from last winter said: ‘If asked to sum up my experience with Robes in one word, I would say “lifesavers"’. David, now living in a housing association property has agreed to share his story with our supporters. You can read this here
