Lunchtime Lockdowns

The Connection Covid-19 response

Here at The Connection we have been working hard to accommodate those rough sleeping in Westminster into temporary accommodation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Covid-19 pandemic is a worrying time for all of us, as we are disconnected and isolated from others. For those who normally sleep rough and who have now been moved into emergency accommodation, they will have to face additional challenges, as they may experience acute loneliness and struggle to adapt to their new surroundings.

We want to make sure that those living in accommodation do not have to worry about when their next meal may be. We are helping to provide three meals a day to over 350 people in Westminster, but we need support to help us continue this life-saving work.

By joining our lunchtime lockdowns and donating £7 you will be helping to provide three meals to someone living in isolation.
