London Refuge threatened with closure

 
April 2nd 2010
 

March has seen the threatened closure of one of the only hostels offering shelter to very young runaways. The six-bed London Refuge, one of the few places in the UK that offers beds to under 16s, is threatened with closure after funding from the NSPCC and local authorities was cut.

However, coverage of the imminent closure has been strong in the mainstream media, including Radio 4's Today Programme, so we'll watch to see if can be saved.
