Sha’arei Tsedek Night Shelter initiative

UPDATE – April 2020

During the current Coronavirus outbreak night shelters in Barnet, run by Homeless Action in Barnet, has been trying to keep running its normal service. However, this has been challenging for both the guests and volunteers. As the pandemic has worsened it has become harder to sustain the night shelter provisions offered within the borough and the current shelter provisions have been temporarily closed.

Speaking about the situation Amanda Weiss, Charity Operations Manager for Together in Barnet says: “I am very pleased and relieved to inform our supporters, that, as of Monday evening, all of the guests supported by the charity have been placed in temporary accommodation provided by the government in West London. Needless to say this is fantastic news”.

Our shelter was due to start in June and run until September. Unfortunately, this initiative is now temporarily on hold until further notice. Over the coming weeks and months HAB will be working in conjunction with the government to organise logistics of getting necessary essentials to the clients.

As a small charity these changes will pose some financial challenges to the organisation. If you would like to support Homeless Action in Barnet/Together in Barnet and make a donation please click here.

Together in Barnet need your help

From Amanda Weiss Charity Operations Manager for Together in Barnet

Even though all of Together in Barnet’s guests are now housed, the charity still has a massive amount of work to do to support the Barnet Homeless community that is now in temporary accommodation. To this end, the charity is now working even more closely with its partner charity Homeless Action in Barnet to create a support network for all of the people who have recently been housed.

This is a large undertaking and in order to do this and to be able to swiftly react to the rapidly changing situation Together in Barnet now needs, even more than ever, to call on its resource of amazing volunteers.

Please can you urgently provide the following information to Amanda Weiss (Operations Manager of Together in Barnet) at amanda@togetherinbarnet.org
