St Mungo’s provides a bed and support to more than 2,800 people a night who are either homeless or at risk or at risk of homelessness. Our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions.
We were founded in 1975 when a group of six homeless men in London teamed up to create the change they wanted to see - an end to rough sleeping and a city where everyone has a place to call home and the chance to live a fulfilling life.
Today, we are the largest homeless charity dedicated to helping Londoners in crisis. Every year, we help over 10,000 people to leave homelessness behind, to be seen, to be heard, and find a place to call home.

4.7 million adults in the United Kingdom struggle to afford to eat every day, 2 million children are at risk of missing the next meal. Meanwhile, our food industry generates 3 million tonnes of good, edible surplus food each year.
With the escalating cost of living crisis causing food poverty rates to surge, The Felix Project is delivering 70 per cent more food than it did in 2020 and is on track to supply people who are struggling, including families, children, the homeless and refugees, with the equivalent of 40 million meals this year. Seven hundred and fifty charities are currently on the waitlist for Felix food.
The Felix Project believes in a vision of London where no-one goes hungry and good food is never wasted. And together, we believe we can win the fight against food waste and hunger in London.
Team Felix aims to raise over £25,000 which could provide over 110,000 meals. Be part of Team Felix today!
