House of St Barnabas - correction and update

May 22 2009
Santos: no accommodation Santos: no accommodation
The Soho hostel will not be providing accommodation after renovation work begins We mentioned the future for 'new residents' in our article last month on the women's hostel in Soho. But now Eluned Santos, Chief Executive of The House of St Barnabas, wishes to make it clear that unfortunately it will not be providing any accommodation after work begins there on 31st March. Even once they reopen as a 'Move On Centre' there will be no accommodation. There is also discussion as to the exact nature of the future services, as Santos told The Pavement, "At present we are planning a Move On Centre for homeless people to help them move on from homelessness into jobs and accommodation. Although currently we work with women only we have not yet made the decision whether we should continue doing that or provide a service for mixed sexes."
