Story

Every 11 minutes one Londoner is forced into homelessness.

Each day across all 32 London boroughs, our staff work with individuals to tackle the underlying causes of homelessness, such as poor mental health or drug and alcohol dependency.

Often that means being there for people at a critical time whether to prevent their eviction or help them off the street; to get them into drug or alcohol treatment or support them with their mental health; or to help them find a job and a flat so that they can take the final steps to living on their own.

From supporting people in crisis to helping people take the final steps towards independence and employment, We make a difference to10,000 Londoners every year. Londoners Like Blaise

Blaise was forced to leave his family home. At first, he relied on his friends for a warm meal and a place to stay. But when that wasn't an option, he was forced onto the streets of East London.

Today things are very different for Blaise. He has a place of his own, has bagged his dream job working in a boxing gym, and has rebuilt his relationship with his family.

"The first night I had to sleep rough, I realised what a dangerous situation I was in. I found it really hard to get the help I needed. When I got help through Single Homeless Project, I thought they would just move me on, get me a place, that's it. But they gave me so much more. They've unlocked that part of my brain for me to keep moving forward. I have my own place, I have my dream job, I've reconnected with my Mum. I feel like I can be a beacon of positive hope for someone else now. I've never felt that way about myself before. Ever.
