What we do

Pl84u Al Suffa works in Waltham Forest to provide a range of services to children, the elderly and the general public, within a welcoming environment for their guests to relax in. 

Their services include:

  • Providing hot meals
  • Offering companionship
  • Signposting guests to relevant organisations
  • Providing clothes, sleeping bags and keep warm kits
  • Providing recreational facilities
  • Providing free haircuts for the homeless

They work with partners such as the North East London Pharmaceutical committee (NEL LPC), Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB), Tesco, Fareshare and Muslim Aid.

Peace is the foundation upon which PL84U AL-SUFFA was built upon Supported by Muslim Aid and volunteers from our local community we exist to promote unity. Those of faith and no faith, the elderly and people in need, those we would possibly turn a blind eye to on the streets, and those who donate, those who serve, and play chess. Those who set aside time from their busy lives to volunteer on a Sunday. If you want an exceptional recipe for peace and harmony, these are the essential ingredients, and PL84U AL-SUFFA have them in spades.

The beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) said: ‘None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.’

And that’s why we feel blessed to live in a community where there are a lot of generous, kind hearted and diverse people. The need for genuine interactions and humanity is recognised, that human beings need more than a hot meal and clothes; that is what PL84U AL-SUFFA endeavour to provide. They host their guests with warmth in their hearts and welcome open and respectful discussions.

Where we can learn from each other about peace, empathy, and respect. When we open our hearts we discover that there is more that unites us than that what divides us. At pl84U AL SUFFA we welcome everyone and aim to see others as our fellow human being, first and foremost, and not see their gender, their faith, their race or any other labels we apply to ourselves.

Our guests are more than just ‘statistics.’ We empathise with the experiences of our guests and strive to provide a steady hand to hold over the stepping-stones. Something as simple as sharing a meal, a friendly chat or a game of chess in the hopes of making a small difference.
