Hope Street Opens

On 25th March, East London homelessness charity, Caritas Anchor House, opened Hope Street, a new 15-room accommodation project.

Quadrant London Director Andy Travers (pictured left) and Project Manager Jacqueline Heng, who provided the pro bono Building Control service for the project, were joined by the Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development Tom Copley, who cut the opening ribbon along with Caritas Chief Executive Amanda Dubarry.
Caritas Anchor House provides a home and support for people experiencing homelessness in Newham, which has the highest levels in the country with 1 in 22 people currently experiencing homelessness.

Hope Street has been built in a large unused warehouse at Caritas Anchor House’s main Barking Road site. It has been designed for those that have been sleeping rough. Many of them will be moving on from hotels and emergency accommodations where they have been housed and supported during the pandemic.

Hope Street has the feel of a compact village with each room designed to empower its residents to feel a sense of ownership of both their home and their environment. As every individual is different and special, this has been reflected in the aesthetics, with each unit having a unique character. Each independent accommodation unit evokes the feeling of safety and tranquillity – a peaceful and secure haven to retreat to and call home.
