The Connection at St Martin’s is located next to Trafalgar Square, and helps thousands of homeless people every year to move away from, and stay off the streets of London. We are much more than a soup kitchen and provide a range of specialist services, all under one roof, which help people tackle the root causes of their homelessness and any issues that have arisen from their time on the streets, and make the necessary steps away from the streets so they can re-enter society and live a fulfilling life again.
With over 60 years’ experience in the sector, we are experts at delivering effective services which prevent and reduce rough sleeping in London. Importantly, all our services are ground-level and user-led, meaning that we are always in touch with current trends in homelessness and are able to react appropriately. Innovative new services include a dedicated team of immigration professionals; a specialist project providing an integrated package of employment and housing; a Private Rented Sector worker, focusing on the increased numbers of UK-national homeless people not qualifying for social housing; and our in-house service-user volunteering scheme, which sees all new staff being interviewed by an additional panel of service-users.
