Although all bedrooms had been modernised by 2018, it had not been possible to make all of them en-suite. With the addition of the rooms on the ground floor in 2019 work continued to convert the remaining rooms on the first and second floors at the back of the building and by the end of 2020, Phase 8 was completed. This resulted in 163 en-suite rooms in the main QVSR building and a 6 further bedrooms in the former Manse building. In January 2021 work commenced to convert the Manse into en-suite bedrooms and we are now able to offer 174 homeless men the dignity and comfort of a bedroom with private bathroom.
All through our history, we have maintained a long association with active seafarers, providing port based welfare services to crews visiting the Port of London and Port of Tilbury. In July 2022, we expanded our welfare work to the Ports of Bristol, Felixstowe and Immingham and now manage the 5 seafarers’ centres under a new subsidiary charitable company, QVSR Seafarers Centres.
