Why fundraise for us?

Each day across all 32 London boroughs, our staff work with individuals to tackle the underlying causes of homelessness, such as poor mental health or drug and alcohol dependency.

With 40 years of expertise and a London-wide reach, we make a difference to more than 10,000 lives every year.

Often that means being there for people at a critical time – whether to prevent their eviction or help them off the street; to get them into drug or alcohol treatment or support them with their mental health; or to help them find a job and a flat so that they can take the final steps to living on their own.

Perhaps most important of all, our work restores hope to people who might otherwise feel forgotten, left behind or written off, providing crucial footholds in their recovery journey from which they can go on to build independent and fulfilling lives.

My future is looking really bright. I want other young people in my position to know that with the right support and self-belief, your past doesn’t need to hold you back.

After Alexi’s mother died, she was forced to leave home at just 16 and slept on a different sofa every night. She moved into our young people service in Greenwich and focused her energy into studying.  

Single Homeless Project gave Alexi the right space and support to keep building her skills, self-belief and determination. Now 18, she won’t let anything get in the way of her dreams, recently accepting a place at Oxford University.
