West End Homelessness is a partnership between The Connection at St Martin’s and the Westminster business community. We are passionate about and committed to ending homelessness in Westminster.
No matter where you live in the country, you can’t have failed to notice the increase in homelessness in recent years. This increase is particularly pronounced in Westminster – it’s estimated that 1 in 15 of all rough sleepers in England are found here.
We need to provide a new response to this rise.
The West End Homelessness partnership funds the delivery of a vital new Street Engagement service. Across the areas in which it operates, this service benefits both homeless people and local businesses.
How it works
Businesses make referrals which the team promptly responds to. Over the past year, this service has supported hundreds of street homeless people and concerned businesses.
We want to expand this service to a wider area.
