Church Housing Trust
Church Housing Trust supports people who have been homeless, by funding the help they need to rebuild their lives. Our roots go back to 1882, when Revd Wilson Carlile began working with homeless people in central London. Today we help more than 4,500 people every year.
We do this by providing funding for clothes, training, travel, facilities, life skills and other personal support that helps people to become more confident and healthy. We also support their move to independent living with grants for basic furnishings and household essentials for their new homes.
Connection at St Martin's
The Connection at St Martin's is open every day of the week for homeless people of all ages. Services include streetwork, two day centres, a night centre, advice, clinics, resettlement, arts, training.
130 staff and 250 volunteers help 7,500 people every year to rebuild their lives away from the streets. Annual costs are £3.8m.
Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people. We are dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change.
Our innovative education, employment, housing and well-being services address individual needs and help people to transform their lives.
We have ambitious plans for the future and are committed to help more people in more places across the UK. We know we won’t end homelessness overnight or on our own. But we take a lead, collaborate with others and, together, make change happen.

Until there’s a home for everyone
In our affluent nation, tens of thousands of people wake up every day in housing that is run-down, overcrowded, or dangerous. Many others have lost their home altogether. The desperate lack of decent, affordable housing is robbing us of security, health, and a fair chance in life.
Shelter believes everyone should have a home.
More than one million people a year come to us for advice and support via our website, helplines and national network of services. We help people to find and keep a home in a place where they can thrive, and tackle the root causes of bad housing by campaigning for new laws, policies, and solutions.
We need your help to continue our work. Please support us.

St Mungo’s believes no one should be homeless and that people can – and do – recover from the issues that create homelessness. We provide a bed and support to more than 2,500 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to prevent homelessness, helping about 25,000 people a year. We support men and women through more than 250 projects including emergency, hostel and supportive housing projects, advice services and specialist physical health, mental health, skills and work services. We also influence and campaign nationally to help people to rebuild their lives. Of course, we couldn’t possibly accomplish this without the help of our supporters.
