The Connection at St Martins

The Connection at St Martin’s is a registered homelessness charity located in the heart of London next to St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square.

We work with approximately 4,000 homeless people every year to move away from, and stay off the streets of London. We are there for people when life has gone profoundly wrong and people are left isolated and in despair. We continue to work with people to overcome their homelessness through a range of specialist day and night services. Our services empower people living on the edges of society to take control of their lives and achieve recovery.

We operate throughout the year and help people from across the UK and the world. Central London attracts thousands of vulnerable people, who wish to start their lives over or believe there are more opportunities available to them here. If these do not materialise, people can find themselves at risk of homelessness.

With over 60 years’ experience in the sector, we are experts at delivering effective services which reduce rough sleeping in London. The Connection is the result of a merger between the Social Care Unit, which operated out of St Martin’s, and the London Connection, a service working specifically with younger people. We continue to work in close partnership with St Martin’s on projects throughout the year including the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal which is a lifeline to vulnerable and homeless people across the UK.
