COVID-19 has had a considerable impact on Restart Lives. The charity has been unable to deliver their services, such as their weekly drop-in services. However, Restart has remained busy and has had to deliver alternative activities to young people.
LandAid’s £9,199 grant will help Restart transition towards a new normal. These funds will help the charity sustain its temporary activities and will fund the weekly drop-in service, a mentoring programme, staffing and food.
With the willing assistance of over 180 volunteers, RESTART supports current and former homeless men and women in London. Its objectives are to help London’s homeless community break the cycle of homelessness and despair, move from the streets, confront the issues obstructing their futures and return to society as empowered, resilient human beings - preferably in employment and living independently in their own homes.
