St Mungo’s is a leading UK homelessness charity supporting over 3150 people every night.
The last few months have been a busy but hugely productive time for St Mungo’s, As the cost of living soars, they are already beginning to see more people forced into street homelessness, and the demand for services is rapidly rising. The most recent government data shows that on a single night in autumn 2022 there were 3,069 people seen sleeping rough in England, an increase of 26% on the previous year’s total of 2,440.
St Mungo’s are continuing to respond to the changing needs of clients in light of this crisis, with new services and modes of support across our regions of work. Already, they have scaled up the offering for clients around accessing benefits and other statutory support, and are running educational sessions to help people with independent living and budgeting as they recover from their time on the streets.
We are proud as a foundation to be supporting such a fantastic charity.
