The need for a local centre where those who are homeless or inadequately housed can find food, clothing, friendship, companionship and advocacy remains as much a pressing need now as it did when the doors of the charity first opened.
We serve between 250 and 300 meals each day but this can be as many as 350 on the coldest days in winter.
The charity's mission is to provide a caring and safe environment for the poor, the marginalised and those who suffer from isolation or are in any kind of physical or emotional need.
The charity is financed by annual funding from The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, other small grant-giving trusts, local businesses, churches and schools and private benefactors. Additional finance is provided by fundraising events organised by our board of trustees, staff and volunteers.
The ongoing need for the advice support and hope offered by Acton Homeless Concern is a sad indictment of the continuing high levels of homelessness and poverty in London.
