Where we work
Our services support people experiencing homelessness across the South East and South West of England
We have services or accommodation in every borough of London, as well as in Bath, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, Brighton, Bristol, Leicester, Oxford and Reading.
Last year we ran 1,317 different projects managed by 180 services, allowing us to support almost 25,000 people. Though our work we provide a bed to more than 2,850 people on any given night.
When including our social lettings agency Real Lettings, we provide support to people across every London borough. Our support ranges from emergency housing, opportunities to learn new skills, like our Putting Down Roots gardening programme, through to innovative accommodation projects, like Housing First.
We recently received permission to one of our services in Westminster, which has helped people to recover from homelessness in the borough for over 50 years.
With 18 services across Bristol, we provide support to people at every stage of homelessness. This includes the city’s outreach team, our rough sleeping prevention team and specialist supported housing.
Services like our Bristol Recovery College, gardening programme Putting Down Roots and our specialist mental health projects support people to move away from homelessness for good.
In Reading, St Mungo’s operates the innovative modular-home units at Caversham Road, as well as a specialised women’s service, the Nova Project. Our Outreach team provide support to people sleeping rough around Reading, and our Recovery College provides clients in recovery with training and development opportunities.
St Mungo’s services in Oxford includes Outreach for people experiencing rough sleeping, LifeWorks psychological therapy and access to an Employment Support Team and Digital Recovery College. We also run Somewhere Safe to Stay, for people who are new to or at risk of homelessness, and Housing First accommodation to provide people with a long-term home.
In Brighton & Hove, St Mungo’s operates the largest Housing First project commissioned by any local authority in England.
Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole
Across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole we run a number of homelessness and mental health services.
Our outreach team provides daily support to people sleeping rough in the three coastal towns. We also run two accommodation based mental health services as well as leading the area’s Housing First programme.
We work closely with partners in Bath to provide specialist services supporting people in the city.
Our mental health accommodation offers a calm space for people recovering from mental health crisis. We also run an innovative volunteer service which provides peer to peer support for those in the sector. And we work within the NHS helping people who are about to leave hospital but have no accommodation.
