The Upper Room (St Saviour's )

The Upper Room began as a simple soup kitchen in 1990 but it now runs three inter-linked projects which focus on giving the homeless and the marginalised the skills and tools they need to improve their lives and become economically independent. All our services are delivered for free.

Founded 1990

  • Mission statement

    Our Mission is to support socially and economically disadvantaged people across London, including the homeless, ex-offenders and destitute migrants, helping them become productive members of society by improving their employability and life chances in general. By improving the lives of disadvantaged people we also generate social benefits associated with fewer victims of crime and reduced homelessness for communities.
