St Mungo’s is a forty year old charity, offering the UK's most comprehensive range of services to people affected by homelessness.
They provide accommodation for over 1,700 homeless people every night, including hostels, care homes for elderly rough sleepers, and women’s refuges. Offering shelter is only just the beginning. St Mungo’s support their clients in their recovery from homelessness and help them towards a positive future.
"Skills & Employment" is a programme of skills training provided by St Mungo's for homeless people, including life skills, job training and recognised qualifications. In facilities ranging from music studios to wood workshops, they run apprenticeships within their own organisation and with partner companies like ours.
70% of St Mungo’s clients have a mental health problem and 64% have a significant physical health condition, so health support is also integral to recovery. The multi-layered health services support St Mungo’s clients' needs in physical health, mental health, substance use and wellbeing.
St Mungo’s also works to prevent homelessness by lobbying government and providing outreach workers on the street who speak to rough sleepers every night of the year.They also have teams based in seven prisons.
