News: The Connection response to COVID-19

Clients remain at our core focus moving forwards and we will continue to support clients the best way we can.

Currently we are keeping critical services open. We will keep updating this page regularly.

The people that we work with, particularly rough sleepers, often have long term conditions and poor physical health which means that they are at a greater risk should they become ill. For those without a home, it is also very difficult to self-isolate. We are therefore doing all that we can to keep people safe, by ensuring good hygiene in the centre, and we have plans in place to mitigate risk if any staff or clients display symptoms or test positive for the virus.

We are working closely with Westminster Council, the Greater London Authority, and membership organisations like Homeless Link to ensure a co-ordinated and sensible approach to supporting rough sleepers at this unprecedented and difficult time.
