The Link Community Outreach
The Link is closed. After 12½ years of serving homeless and vulnerably-housed adults on a Thursday evening at East Croydon URC, we have taken the difficult decision to close. Thank you to everyone who has supported us in one way or another over the years. Many thanks, Pauline Miller

Further information will follow about alternative drop-ins for homeless and vulnerably-housed adults. 

Just for fun!
