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 have recently moved towards embracing enterprise, and will use food and drink based enterprise to provide training and routes to work for our homeless clients, as well as working in collaboration with our clients to develop high quality and delicious products for sale through our partner cafes, to local cafes and delis and through our online shop.
