Housing crisis in the borough of Greenwich

In 2022 there were nearly 4,500 homeless people in the borough of Greenwich.* The Council has almost 30,000 people on the housing waiting list with only about 1,000 homes becoming available for rent each year.** As the housing crisis grows and the cost of living goes up, the demand for our services is ever greater. 

Who we are

We are a grassroots charity based in the heart of Woolwich, serving the borough of Greenwich. From our hub in Brookhill Road, SE18, we provide practical and emotional support to those seeking help in our community.  

Some of our service users (guests) are sleeping rough on the streets and rely on us for warmth and hot meals. Other guests are struggling with poverty, are unable to heat their homes, can’t afford to buy food and have mental health issues.  

With over 100 guests attending our drop-in sessions each week your financial support is key to making our services sustainable, and critical in light of the ongoing cost-of-living crisis directly impacting our community. 

What we do

WSUP offers essential services including a warm and safe community space where people
in need can access food. We are the only place in the borough to offer free showers, haircuts,  laundry service and clothing bank. We support people who are going through, or are at risk of, poverty, homelessness, addiction or any other life challenges. We are a non-judgemental environment and our doors are open to everyone in our community who needs us. 

We rely mainly on donations to provide our services. By donating from £100 to £400 a month you can help keep our services running.

What you can do

Please help us by making a suggested donation of £100 to £400 a month. All donations are tax deductible. Your donation will allow us to continue to: 

  • provide a warm, safe space for everyone in our community who needs it
  • serve hot meals to those who can’t otherwise afford them
  • offer showers, clothing, haircuts and a laundry service

In addition we will be able to:

  • extend our operating hours
  • expand our accommodation support service
  • help more people with addiction recovery and mental health issues
  • provide skills training and pathways to employment for our guests
  • offer additional wellbeing activities
  • provide outreach services to rough sleepers 

As a thank you

We will add your company’s name and logo to our website, offer you discounted hire of our accessible, local, meeting space and invite you to a yearly event with our staff and volunteers. You will be able to display our logo to show you’re supporting a local charity.

Please bring hope to your local community and make a difference for those struggling. Call or email now on 020 8316 6558 or info@wsupwoolwich.org
