Get involved and support our work

In the UK homelessness is at its highest in Westminster, this is where The Connection has been working for over 100 years. We believe that no one should be on the streets at any time of year. That’s why the Connection isn’t just here for Christmas.

The Connection isn’t just here for Christmas. We’re here for people experiencing homelessness, every day. We get to know people, building lasting relationships as they recover from life on the streets and move on to fulfilling futures.

Please see below for how you can help us support people long after the Christmas decorations are packed away. So we can be there for those who need us most in the weeks, months and years ahead.

Ways to be involved

Corporate Partnerships
If your workplace is looking for a charity to support, you can find more information on our Partnerships page.

Fundraise for us
If sport is your thing, you can actively help end rough sleeping by taking part in one of our challenges – we have walking, running & cycling events to choose from. Or if you prefer to get creative and run your own fundraiser with friends, work, your church or school please get in touch with fundraising@cstm.org.uk and we’ll be happy to help with advice and materials.

Trusts
We are supported by a wide range of funders. If you have links to a charitable trust or foundation and would like to know more about our work and/or current funding needs, please contact Maria Holmlund on Maria.Holmlund@cstm.org.uk
