About St Mungo's

St Mungo’s believes everyone should have a place to call home and be able to fulfil their hopes and ambitions. We are here to end homelessness and rebuild lives. We achieve this through:

  • Providing direct support to our clients to prevent or respond to their homelessness and to enable their recovery.
  • Building relationships with communities and the wider public to increase understanding about homelessness and empathy for the people who experience it.
  • Combining the voices of our clients with evidence and knowledge about what works to advocate for policy change.

We support men and women through more than 330 projects including street outreach, hostel and supportive housing projects, advice services and specialist physical health, mental health, skills and work services. We house 2,700 people every night and our wide range of services help about 25,000 people a year.

We employ 1300 staff and 800 volunteers.

Our services are currently spread across London and the south and south west of England, and we are talking active measures to develop more services in more geographical areas.

We influence and campaign nationally to help people affected by homelessness to rebuild their lives and our voices is highly respected by those in government, based as it is on evidence and what our clients say.

Our clients are at the heart of what we do, and we are constantly improving the ways in which we involve them in all aspects of service development and delivery. We have a very active Client Advisory Board which meets regularly with trustees.

We have taken a ‘bottom up’ approach to developing an ambitious five-year strategy with input from all our stakeholders including clients, commissioners and staff.

Although our services are not focused entirely on rough sleeping, this where our roots and history lie and it remains at the heart of what we do. In the next five years our ambition is to reverse the increase in rough sleeping in England. In the areas where we work, we aim by 2021 to halve the number of people sleeping rough.

Our aims are to:

  • Improve our services, our housing - and the systems they rely on - so they are even safer and more effective in changing the lives of our clients.
  • Interconnect to resources, assets and support in the areas where we work.
  • Innovate and test new evidence-based services that prevent and tackle rough sleeping.
  • Influence national and local government to implement new rough sleeping strategies.
  • Involve our clients in everything we do.

Our annual turnover is £85 million. Our primary sources of income are:

  • Income from statutory sources such as contracts for services provided to Local Authorities under the Supporting People funding arrangements, GLA funding for the No Second Night Out project, central Government funding
  • Rents
  • Fundraising from trusts, companies and charitable donations.

We have a stable and high performing Board and senior team who have laid the essential foundations and platform from which we can confidently move ahead to achieve our ambitions.

We are a registered charity No 1149085, a limited company registered in England and Wales No 8225808, and a Housing Association No LH0279.
