Our aim is to provide homeless people with support to transform their own lives.
The Passage runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people: each day we help up to 200 men and women.
Our eight-strong team of Outreach Workers makes contact, often late at night or early in the morning, with those sleeping rough in Victoria as they are bedding down or getting up each day.
Our 40-bed hostel, Passage House, was officially opened on 1 March 2000. In the year 1st April to 31st March 2013, 23 residents completed a planned move on.
Our 16 self-contained studio flats in Montfort House have staff support on site and specialise in helping very long term rough sleepers.
We welcome and treat clients with respect and dignity, and find out what they need and want. We offer professional and appropriate advice and help according to the client’s needs and aspirations. We agree an action plan with clients which is time limited with the aim of supporting clients out of homelessness.
Of the over £4 million a year it costs to keep The Passage going, only 40% is funded from statutory sources; the rest comes from donations from individuals, church organisations, charitable trusts and companies.
The Passage is committed to fostering good relations with its neighbours and to reducing any impact of its presence in the area to a minimum.
Could you support formerly homeless people to put down roots in their local communities? Volunteers are also needed to help with The Passages new ‘Home for Good’ project.

BORDERLINE – supporting homeless Scots in London http://www.borderline-uk.org/
Borderline is the only organisation that specifically helps homeless Scots in London and we exist to improve the lives of vulnerable Scots on the streets, or those who are at risk of ending up on the streets of London.
Our aim is to remove or reduce homelessness by providing access to accommodation and specialist support services. We are committed to following objectives:
– to reduce homelessness and prevent rough sleeping
– to prevent homelessness wherever possible
– to access a wide range of accommodation options for our clients
– to ensure clients have access to appropriate specialist help
We believe that every Scot in London should have a home, and the support needed to lead a healthy independent life.
We are the national membership charity for organisations working directly with people who become homeless in England. We work to make services better and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness.
