St Mungo’s

St Mungo’s

St Mungo’s is a leading homelessness charity. Our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions. We help some of the most vulnerable people in our society (for example, those living on the streets or those at risk of homelessness) to rebuild their lives.

Facts about our job

  • The main causes of homelessness include relationship breakdown, eviction and bereavement – homelessness can happen to anyone.
  • On any given night we provide housing and support to 2,800 people across England who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
  • Our outreach teams worked with 6,364 people last year. 1,774 people were helped into accommodation.

Our outreach teams go out night after night to find people who are sleeping rough, helping them off the streets and into accommodation. We help people aged 16 and over, including those with complex problems (for example, those with a history of abuse) through year round housing and support.

We are one of few charities that enables people to live in our housing with their dogs/other pets.

Our work is crucial as sleeping rough is dangerous and life-threatening. The average age of death for a homeless man is 47, and for a woman, just 43. We believe that homeless health matters. We help people get access to healthcare and look after and improve their physical and mental health.

The people we help are at the heart of what we do. We focus on recovery and help homeless people gain new skills (such as reading and writing) and get back into work.

We campaign to raise awareness of the rights of homeless people and the issues affecting them, which would otherwise go unnoticed, for example the scandal of those sleeping rough with mental health problems.

A regular gift to St Mungo’s could help people recover from homelessness and plan for a brighter future. Thank you.
