TransformShoreditch was established in 2016 to partner with TransformUK in delivering our mission to demonstrate God’s love to those in need. We work with the whole community but focus on projects specific to those who are homeless or vulnerably housed, young people facing barriers to their education and those who are elderly and isolated.
TransformUK aims to bring transformational love to the poorest parts of the UK. Together we believe love can transform every individual and the communities they are in, no matter what circumstances and challenges they face. We deliver a range of youth and community projects, education programmes and a variety of social enterprises – check out our own TransformCoffee promoted by Anthony Joshua!
In partnership with Spitalfields Crypt Trust, we run a weekly drop in for those in our community who are homeless or insecurely housed and vulnerable. We deliver signposting support and advice and work with a range of corporate and community volunteers to cook a hot meal to serve to our guests.
If you would like to refer someone to this project or give a slip to someone you know is vulnerable, do tell them where to find us: every Friday 9-11am at the Tab Centre.
Tower Hamlets Street Pastors
The Tower Hamlets Street Pastors are a committed group of caring, trained volunteers from surrounding churches who have a heart for their local community.
We walk the streets around Brick Lane and Shoreditch on a Friday evening between 10:00pm to 2:00am to care for, listen to and help people, whether it is to give flip-flops to young ladies too drunk to walk in their high heels, or to give out warm hats, gloves or thermal blankets to those sleeping rough. We engage in casual or more meaningful conversations with people, diffuse potentially aggressive situations, look out for people who are lost, drunk or distressed, and sometimes signpost people to appropriate help agencies.
We are part of a national network of trained Street Pastors who have a heart to help and care for people out and about on the streets at night. If you ever come across us on patrol, please stop and say hi. We would love to meet you.
