The Connection at St Martin’s helps thousands of people every year to move away from, and stay off, the streets of London. We do this by tackling the underlying causes of rough sleeping as well as offering practical help.
We provide tailored employment support and training, volunteering opportunities and housing advice. We also provide a variety of specialist services to help clients cope with the physical and psychological effects of being homeless, empowering them to develop their strengths and ability to change their own future and recover from homelessness – working with clients, not for them.
We provide a range of activity groups which reduce isolation and encourage people to explore or discover new interests. Groups include art, digital skills, gardening, mindfulness as well as help with addressing problems such as anger or gambling.
We also offer hot meals and showers, access to medical appointments and somewhere warm and safe to sleep in our Emergency Accommodation.
Last year, we helped over 2,600 people on their journey away from homelessness.
