Homeless Support & Food Banks
The Connection at St Martin’s is a registered homelessness charity located in the heart of London next to St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square.
 
We work with approximately 4,000 homeless people every year to move away from, and stay off the streets of London. We are there for people when life has gone profoundly wrong and people are left isolated and in despair. We continue to work with people to overcome their homelessness through a range of specialist day and night services. Our services empower people living on the edges of society to take control of their lives and achieve recovery.
 
We operate throughout the year and help people from across the UK and the world. Central London attracts thousands of vulnerable people, who wish to start their lives over or believe there are more opportunities available to them here. If these do not materialise, people can find themselves at risk of homelessness.
 
With over 60 years’ experience in the sector, we are experts at delivering effective services which reduce rough sleeping in London. The Connection is the result of a merger between the Social Care Unit, which operated out of St Martin’s, and the London Connection, a service working specifically with younger people. We continue to work in close partnership with St Martin’s on projects throughout the year including the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal which is a lifeline to vulnerable and homeless people across the UK.

Ending homelessness, rebuilding lives

St Mungo’s outreach teams go out each night to meet people who are homeless and to help them off the streets. With 17 outreach teams we are one of the largest providers of outreach services in the country. Each night we offer a bed and support to more than 2,850 people across the south and south west. We believe that people can – and do – recover from the issues that cause homelessness. We work to prevent homelessness and support people at every step of their recovery from homelessness.

Homeless Support & Food Banks
Our aim is to end hunger and poverty in the UK.
 
We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
 
In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. We support more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Between April 2018 and March 2019, food banks in our network provided a record 1.6 million food supplies to people in crisis, a 19% increase on the previous year.
 
We know it takes more than food to end hunger. That’s why we bring together the experiences of food banks in our network to challenge the structural economic issues that lock people in poverty, and campaign to end the need for food banks in the UK.
