Join our mission to end homelessness

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.

So far this winter, Londoners have taken

4,600

actions to help end homelessness

 

Actions include
•    donations made via TAP London contactless points
•    donations made online on GoFundMe
•    StreetLink referrals during the campaign
•    sign ups to volunteering updates

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. 

Where does my donation go?

Where does my donation go?
Your donation goes to the London Homeless Charities Group, a coalition of charities supported by the Mayor. Last year, Londoners donated almost £200,000 to help rough sleepers off the street – double the original target.

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.
