London PLUS Project

The PLUS Project is a partnership between Shelter and Homeless Link. Funded by London Councils, we support organisations, boroughs and landlords in London working with people who are sleeping rough, homeless, or in housing need. Our work has a stong partnership, cross-sector working and equalities focus.

All PLUS Project activities are funded by London Councils, which means there is no cost to you.
