As Mayor of London, I’m on a mission to end homelessness in our city. Will you join me?
How you can help
This winter we are opening more emergency shelters than ever before and the Mayor is doubling his street outreach workers. You can play a part too.
What is the Mayor doing?
- Opening shelters throughout winter, offering rough sleepers immediate support to help them off the streets
- Doubling the number of his street outreach workers, bringing support to rough sleepers where they need it
- Delivering 11,000 new council homes for social rent over the next four years to help address the long-term causes of homelessness
- Calling on government to invest more in tackling the root causes of homelessness, such as welfare cuts and the lack of affordable housing
Continuing to deliver on London’s first ever Rough Sleeping Action plan, the Mayor is using all his powers and resources to help end homelessness.
Severe weather: emergency shelters are now open
Tonight it's going to be below zero degrees. Whenever freezing temperatures are forecast in London, the Mayor and councils open emergency shelters and beds for people sleeping rough. Find out more.
Where does my donation go?
So that Londoners can understand the huge positive impact of their generosity, here are some examples of how the money was spent.
How are we making a difference?
Biniam was one of hundreds of homeless people helped by services that received funding from last year’s appeal. The Westminster Outreach team found him and introduced him to the Connections St Martin’s Night Centre.
