Charity and social round-up: A new shelter for the homeless in Archway

Homeless charity Shelter from the Storm has found a new home in Archway, N19.

Established in 2007, the free emergency night shelter had previously operated from an industrial estate near King’s Cross for more than eight years.

After the lease came to an end, the charity purchased a disused supermarket in Archway and has since received approval from Islington Council for the design of a new shelter, community café and smaller, more viable retail unit.

The new amenities, which will include English classes, Wi-fi and yoga sessions, will also be shared
