Providence Row

The oldest homeless charity in London’s East End holds an ‘open afternoon’ tomorrow (Thurs) to show what it offers those on the streets and those who have been helped back into society and had their lives turned around.

The Providence Row organisation is opening the doors of its Dellow Centre in Spitalfields, which tackles the root causes of homelessness to keep people off the streets. It helped over 6,000 last year alone.

The charity, founded in 1860 by Fr Daniel Gilbert and the Sisters of Mercy, builds skills and confidence through trainee schemes, language classes and employment workshops. The centre in Wentworth Street is open tomorrow from 1.30 to 4.30pm.
