A Place To Call Home

Once complete, Blue Wren House will provide safe, supported accommodation (for up to 3 months) for 5 Women and their dependent children who are escaping domestic violence or homelessness. Ensuring a fully functional ready to move in Shelter is a complex task and Blue Wren House have a passionate and experienced Board who are more than up for the challenge. Camden Council have been incredibly supportive of this and has offered the Board a 20-year lease on a 3-bedroom cottage. Whilst this cottage is in need of repair, the community response to our “Shout Out” for donations of materials and trade support has been absolutely sensational. Thanks to the generosity of our Community, the Board is able to not only proceed with the cottage refurbishment, but also look to construct a 2-bedroom secondary dwelling at the rear of the cottage. That being said, we still have a number of items (services and materials) to complete this incredibly important project and have them listed here. If you or someone you know may be in a position to assist, please reach out to us to discuss it further.  We are incredibly grateful for the support to date and ongoing and this truly is a Shelter developed by the Community for the Community.

“You can recognise survivors of abuse by their courage. When silence is so very inviting, they step forward and share their truth so others know they aren’t alone.”
