The sleeping areas were also refurbished.

We're equally thankful to our team of subcontractors who shared our determination to deliver this important centre for London's homeless community."

Jo Sayer, Field Director for South London for LCM added: "We are delighted by the work that GRAHAM and associated sub-contractors carried out on The Corner House to make it a safe, comfortable and fit for purpose accommodation centre. We are extremely grateful for the work that was delivered at no cost to London City Mission and for the ethos of GRAHAM in wanting to make a difference in communities. It has been a pleasure working with all at GRAHAM throughout this process."
