CANCELLATION: World Homeless Day reception

7th October 2019

Unfortunately, in light of the disruption in Westminster caused by the protests, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our World Homeless Day reception due to take place tomorrow, Tuesday 8th October 2019 from 12:30-14:30.

We have been in touch with the venue and the Met Police and, whilst we are still receiving conflicting messages around both safety and access, we feel it would be irresponsible to go ahead as we’re unable to ensure the safety of attendees.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this causes and for the late notice. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing If you have invited a guest, please do pass on this message.

Once again, we are very sorry for this inconvenience.

Best wishes,

Amanda Dubarry

Chief Executive
