Thank you to everyone who supported this project. The project is now closed.

The Whitechapel Mission has been helping people who are rough sleeping since 1876, meeting the specific needs of each man and woman who walks through their doors.


Whitechapel Mission can see as many as 600 people a day, looking for our assistance, remaining open every day. They receive no statutory funding and none of your donations will be spent on fundraising or administration.

We recognise the value of everybody coming through our doors.
First, we help people by meeting immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. In our recovery programs, we address deeper needs for life-skills and job-skills training, and addiction recovery. We measure our progress against four criteria, which indicate to us that a life has been transformed from homelessness to hope: connection to family, commitment to sobriety, a job and a place to live, and a plan for the future.
