About the Connection at St Martin’s – Being with people at the heart and on the edge
The Connection at St Martin’s exists to be with people as they recover from life on the streets and move on to meaningful, fulfilling futures. We work with people, not for them, and put every individual person at the centre of their recovery. As part of St Martin’s, we have been on the front line helping those in crisis for over one hundred years, right in the heart of Westminster – which has more rough sleepers than anywhere else in the UK. We have helped thousands of people to move away from, and stay off, the streets of London.
We empower people who are on the edge of society to take control of their lives by:
• Supporting people to build on their strengths, recover from crisis and move away from the streets for good;
• Collaborating with other specialist services to ensure that everyone receives the right support at the right time;
• Giving a voice to people we support and sharing their experiences with those in power, to create a society where nobody has to sleep rough.
