Thankful for Oasis Coffee Shop and the regular support they give to 57 West to enable us to provide hot drinks and meals each week.
SEVERE WEATHER UPDATE
The council have opened up an extra venue which has the capacity for an additional 20 homeless people to sleep overnight. We have so far r...eferred 7 people. This is in addition to the existing emergency provision in Southend, which includes HARP's night shelter and the Churches Winter Night Shelter partnership.
We have also increased our staffing this evening up until midnight, so if you are concerned about a rough sleeper, in addition to reporting to StreetLink, please contact HARP on 01702 430 696. Alternatively, rough sleepers can contact us directly by telephone or come to the Bradbury Centre to get details of the venue.
Wherever possible, people still need to be referred via HARP as we have been asked by the council to help manage this additional service and to ensure safe operation.
Thankful for the 57 West community for bringing modern slavery to our attention. Together we can make a difference to stop MS

As 2017 draws to a close, we can reflect on the transformation we have been through in the last few months here at 57 West. We have grown so much it is already ...hard to believe that we have only been here a couple of months. We would like to thank everyone that has supported us in our move. A particular thank you to all those that have donated either time or items to us. Especially our regular volunteers that help facilitate our drop in during the week. We couldn’t do it without you. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to working with you all in 2018
I leave you with the video that was made for us as we moved to our new premises.
God bless you all.
Evolution of 57 West: I am very pleased to be able to share with you the promotional video for local baptist church and homeless charity, 57 West. It has been a... pleasure not only to be working on this video over the last few months, but also to be experiencing their transition first hand.
