London Shelter Project

Did you know there are 50,000 people who are homeless tonight, right here in the UK?

Due to this growing need, the National Zakat Foundation and St Mungo’s collaborated to launch the Muslim Women’s Project in October 2012. It is a 14-bed shelter in South London which offers supported housing and support for homeless Muslim women and gives them the space to practice their faith and become part of the healing process.

Opened: October 2012
Partner: St Mungo’s is one of the largest charities for homeless people in London.
