Once again we are taking part in the night shelter at St Augustine’s, Queen’s Gate, SW7 5LP (near South Kensington tube station). We are needed on Wednesdays from about 7.30pm to help serve food and chat with the guests. Email for more details.

Also on Saturday afternoons at St Augustine’s there is an afternoon drop-in centre run by Restart Charity ( These drop-ins run throughout the year. They are looking to start a two tier mentoring initiative.
This is what they told us:

We are initially looking for volunteers who are interested in becoming either a mentor or a befriender. Both will have very similar training and supervision, although mentoring will be a six-month commitment and the onus on meeting the mentee would be very much up to both parties. For the "befriending" option, the commitment would look more like one or two months, with meetings with mentee restricted to Saturday's at the Drop-in. At this stage, we are interested in getting an idea of numbers, anyone that is keen on finding out more. We will be writing to everyone that registers an interest in the New Year. Please email directly (mentioning that you have come through the Oratory) at

All those aged 18-35 are welcome to attend
