Who we help

Every year we help people who are rough sleeping on their journey away from the streets

The Connection works with people who are rough sleeping in Westminster, who are from across the UK and abroad. The service is inclusive and accessible to every age group, nationality and religion.

Life on the streets is humiliating and dangerous. Many of the people we work with have experienced abuse, trauma, violence, exploitation and stigma. They may also find it hard to trust and accept support from services, particularly if they have had past interactions which didn’t work for them.

Being with people and building trust is a vital part of our job. We are flexible and treat everyone as an individual. We understand the traumatic impact rough sleeping can have and refuse to give up on people. The strength and quality of the connection between us and the people we work with is what sets us apart.
