GrowTH is a charity based in Tower Hamlets, which was set up to help local churches care for those affected by poverty and homelessness in their communities.
Our main project is a night shelter that runs for seven months of the year, offering emergency shelter to local homeless people, completely free of charge. The shelter is run in church halls across the borough and by volunteers from local churches. Homeless guests in our shelter receive help from employed Advocate Workers to try and secure permanent accommodation.
For more information, visit thisisgrowth.org. There are always volunteering opportunities at GrowTH, from simply befriending homeless guests to cooking for the night shelter. If you’d like to be involved, please get in touch.
