St Mungo's
Our mission is to house, support and care for vulnerable people in London who either have been, or at risk of sleeping rough and homelessness. Our aim is to make sure that homeless and vulnerable people can look forward with optimism and can contribute to the quality of life.

At St Mungo’s we provide a bed and support to more than 3,150 people in accommodation each night. As well as accommodation services, we also provide a range of services, such as running activities, skills and employment training, and tenancy support, to help people at every stage of their recovery from homelessness. At the heart of all of our services is our commitment for everyone to have a place to call home and fulfil their hopes and ambitions. First Response exists to help find those rough sleeping quicker, and enable Outreach workers to spend more time supporting those found to move away from the streets and get connected to other local services. This is not a client-facing role and therefore is well suited to somebody looking for their first role in the homelessness sector. However, we do also offer development opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge about rough sleeping for those interested.
