  • St Mungo’s

    St Mungo’s opens doors for homeless people.  The charity provides a place to live for 1,700 people - but shelter is just the first step.  St Mungo's offers vital support for mental and physical health issues; lots of opportunities for education and training as well as finding employment; and importantly helps people to move into independent accommodation. 

    The charity’s Rebuilding Shattered Lives appeal focuses specifically on homeless and vulnerable women.  About a quarter of St Mungo’s residents are women and it has identified significant issues for them, where they need help to recover from homelessness.


    St Mungo's wants to raise money for:

    •           A psychotherapist specialising in supporting women

    •           A Family Support Worker who helps people get back in contact with their families

    •           Tailored employment support to enable women to achieve their employment goals – most popular are creative professions, support worker roles and working in business.

    •           An Activities Worker to organise activities and trips

    •           A Support Worker to work across St Mungo’s, specialising in issues around domestic violence and sex working.

    •           Improvements for their accommodation projects

  • Outreach team on street
