About Us

When your way is hard to find, and there’s nowhere left to turn, we are there.

At The Connection, we open our door to everyone who needs a place to call home.

We support people sleeping rough in the heart of London, helping them to recover and find their way off the streets.

We get to know every person we work with, going the extra mile to understand their needs and hopes for the future. Our approach focuses on creative solutions with people, never for them.

The journey can be long, and it’s not an easy path. But we take heart, we stick with people and we don’t give up, supporting them to find their own way home.

Help us make London a city where no one sleeps rough on our streets.

who we are - the connection Our vision: 
We believe that no one should have to sleep rough on London’s streets, and that everyone should get the support they need to find a place to call home. Our mission: 
We support people sleeping rough to find a way off London’s streets. 
We get to know every person we work with, understanding what they need to recover, helping them build on their strengths, and supporting them to find their own way home.

We work with people on their own terms and at their own pace.This helps us build relationships with the people we support, having seen over 1400 people visit our centre in the last year alone.

In this time, we have supported 185 people in finding accommodation, 151 people to build their confidence in our activities groups and raised over £4.9 million to fund these efforts.

Our history is part of who we are – we have decades of expertise and relationship building on our side.
