Our Impact

Every day we work with, not for, people to overcome their homelessness, discover their strengths and find meaningful occupation and independence.

Our vision is that central London is a place of opportunity and hope for marginalised people living on the edges of our society.

We’ve been helping homeless people find a better future for over 60 years. Thanks to our supporters over the years we’ve helped tens of thousands of people rebuild their lives, and continue to have a major impact on some of the most marginalised people in London.
