Making an impact


We’ve just published our latest report ‘Our impact during the cost-of-living crisis’.

We supported over 845 people experiencing homelessness

According to government data, a total of 4,389 people were sleeping rough across London between October and December 2023, a shocking 23% annual increase. This figure is expected to rise as the cost-of-living crisis continues.

In March 2023, 53% of rough sleepers in our boroughs were sleeping rough for the first time

As the number of people experiencing homelessness rises, so does the need for our services. We continue to ensure people sleeping rough are offered accommodation, long-term help to sustain their tenancies and support with their physical and emotional wellbeing.

As a local charity, we could not do what we do without the support of our dedicated local community, our corporate partners and charitable trusts and foundations – thank you for helping us make a difference.
