Spires is a South London based charity that helps hundreds of homeless and disadvantaged people all year round.

Supporting homeless people

Covid-19 - This is a particularly difficult time for some of the most vulnerable people in our community and Spires staff continue to offer a breakfast each weekday morning to rough sleepers. We are working with Lambeth, Merton and Wandsworth to get people into accommodation, but are seeing new people every day/week who find themselves on the streets for the first time.

Whilst it is not possible to offer a full range of services at the moment, staff are available for Information, Advice and Guidance as  well as practical support for those most in need. If help is required, we can be contacted on our Freephone number 0808 164 5246 - lines open 11:00 am to 3:00 pm - leave a message outside of these times and someone will get back to you.

Take care - Keep safe

We work to improve the quality of life of people who are homeless, insecurely housed, unemployed or suffering from the effects of poverty, mental ill health and loneliness.

Spires day centre

We offer a wide range of help and developmental services through our day centre in Streatham and Streetlink outreach sessions throughout South London. Our aim is to enable our service users to move away from the chaos of the streets and towards a brighter and more stable future.

“Life is good now and I enjoy it 100 per cent better now.

I can’t thank Spires enough.”
