About the St Mungo’s


Our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions.
To do this, we:

Provide support directly to our clients, either to prevent them becoming homeless, or to respond to it and help them recover.

Build relationships with communities and the wider public, aiming to increase understanding of homelessness and empathy towards the people who experience it.

Advocate for policy change by combining our client’s voices with the experience we have about what works.
Since our founding almost 50 years ago, we’ve developed a recovery based approach. At the heart of all of our services is our commitment to empowering individuals, to support people in their recovery journey and to prevent homelessness in the future.

Each of our clients comes to us with a unique set of skills and strengths and we use these as the starting point for moving towards a healthier, happier and more stable life.
We are here to end homelessness and rebuild lives.
