Charity description

Doorstep Homeless Families Project logo
Families attending Doorstep are homeless for a variety of reasons, including: family circumstances, illness, loss of employment, domestic violence, racial harassment, financial difficulties, and due to refugee status. Doorstep aims to assist these families by providing goods and services to make their lives more comfortable as they await a permanent housing solution.

Situated in the Abbots and Levine Hostel, Doorstep serves the 45 families accommodated immediately above, as well as those living in other temporary accomodation in North Camden,  London.

We provide space and resources for children to play, learn, develop and to help them reach their potential. Through these activities and services Doorstep aims to create a community of growth, healing and a sense of belonging that enables children and families to gain strength and confidence as they engage in society and press forward with their future.

Doorstep’s mission is to:
‘To provide homeless families, living in temporary accommodation in the London Borough of Camden, with access to services to secure the emotional and practical support they require to enjoy a good quality of life. This involves creating opportunities as well as supporting families to make the best use of any opportunities that arise.’

Doorstep provides services to families who live in the two hostels above its premises and in other temporary accommodation in the area. Doorstep helps approximately 200-250 people each year by providing a range of services, including:
