Leading homelessness charity St Mungo’s is delighted to announce that luxury lifestyle brand The White Company will support their efforts to help people who are sleeping rough to find meaningful and long-term routes away from the streets.
The White Company has pledged to support St Mungo’s for the next two years. The money will provide vital funds for St Mungo’s street outreach services in the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Westminster.
With 18 outreach teams, St Mungo’s is largest provider of outreach services in England. Each night, the charity’s dedicated staff go out to meet people who are sleeping rough; working to build trust with individuals and helping them to engage with support services. From July to September last year, St Mungo’s outreach teams supported over 3,900 people.
The White Company customers and staff will be offered a range of ways in which they can make a difference through fundraising and empower people experiencing homelessness as they rebuild their lives.
Rebecca Sycamore, Executive Director of Development at St Mungo’s, said “St Mungo’s is proud to be partnering with The White Company. We know their fantastic support will help us to ensure that no one is left behind.
“For many of our clients, connecting with our outreach teams is the first step on their journey towards recovery. Thanks to the generous donations from The White Company and its customers St Mungo’s can continue to be there for those most in need.
“Together we can help more people move away from the streets for good.”
Chrissie Rucker OBE, founder of The White Company, said: “The pandemic has impacted us all in ways we couldn’t have imagined, and particularly those who are living on the streets or at risk of homelessness. That’s why St Mungo’s dedication to ending rough sleeping, and supporting people in their first steps towards recovery, is more important than ever.
“Like them, we are committed to empowering people and eliminating stigma. It takes dedication and commitment to make a real difference, and we hope that donations from our customers can support St Mungo’s in their delivery of specialist services. Through working together, we can help people experiencing homelessness to achieve a brighter future.”
