Finding somewhere to call home

Helping people to find accommodation is a vital part of what we do. This year, 185 people moved into new accommodation with our support.

Moving into accommodation is not always the end of the story. Often our staff will keep in contact to make sure people are coping. This is part of our comprehensive support model.

Sean also suffered from severe eczema in his legs and feet and was referred to Great Chapel Street Medical centre for treatment.

Sean was offered many accommodation options but wouldn’t leave his car until he got his driving licence back.

Recently he moved into our supported accommodation in St Martin’s House where he has his first room in two decades.

St Martin’s House

St Martin’s House supports people who need some extra help maintaining a tenancy and provides accommodation for up to two years as a stepping stone to a more permanent housing solution.

This has been designed by using a Housing First Approach, meaning we provide unconditional support to those who have slept rough in London.


Our dedicated migration team supports people who need help with their migration status.

This service is vital because around half of all people rough sleeping in London are non-UK nationals – which can act as a barrier to accessing accommodation.

Often, these people face additional challenges when recovering from homelessness, from lack of documentation to complex legal issues. These processes can be lengthy and require intensive support from our specialists along the way.

Our team can support people by:

  • helping them understand their entitlements and routes to legal status in the UK;
  • supporting them to obtain ID;
  • advocating for their rights and supporting them through the immigration system;
  • working with them if they seek to return to their country of origin.
