Welcome to CCFS

Welcome to the CCFS website. CCFS stands for Croydon Churches’ Floating Shelter.
Each year since 2004 churches in Croydon have worked together to provide a bed and hot meal for homeless people

The churches offer their guests an evening meal, a bed for the night, breakfast in the morning and a packed lunch to take with them when they leave after breakfast. Some churches are able to offer shower facilities. In addition, our volunteers offer valuable companionship in a warm, safe and caring environment.

Our volunteers make up the beds, provide food, cook and serve the evening meal, wash up, prepare the packed lunches, stay overnight, make breakfast, clear everything away and take laundry home to wash ready for the following week.
