It’s time for you to Take the Lead!

This August, walk a marathon with your favourite four legged friend and raise vital funds to help us support more people experiencing homelessness.


You can take on this paw-some challenge anywhere, in your own time and at your own pace. Break the 26.2 miles into a short walk every day, or opt for a longer walk every week – you could even take the opportunity to visit somewhere new.

It’s your challenge, so you decide when and where you clock up the miles. You’ll get a St Mungo’s lead and T-shirt when you register, plus a funky dog bandana if you raise over £50.

Register for free and get your bandana today.

When I was homeless, I lived in a tent in the park.

Enza struggled to find accommodation with her dog, Lilly when they were sleeping rough. With help from St Mungo’s, they’ve found a home where they can stay together.

“When I was homeless, I lived in a tent in the park. It was hard to find accommodation, because of my dog, but I wouldn’t get rid of Lilly for anyone – she’s lovable and friendly, and I feel safe with her.

Luckily, St Mungo’s offered me a place in one of their women-only, dog friendly hostels. Whilst I was there, they helped me to get independent accommodation. I’ve been here for about a year now, and I’m really happy.”
