The Living Room is a charity which uses church buildings to provide a safe, warm overnight space for rough sleepers over the winter months.

Between the months of November and April,  three churches in the Great Yarmouth borough open up their doors over the weekend so that those who would normally be out on the streets can come in for a hot meal, company and a warm bed.

Below is a  summary of our outcomes for last winter. You can read more in our report 2017 2018.



The Living Room Great Yarmouth is a registered with the Charity Commission.
