The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields

The Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride raises funds to support the work of The Connection at St Martin’s, a registered charity in central London which provides advice, care and support, to around 4,000 homeless and vulnerable people every year.



The Connection at St Martin’s offers a range of specialist services – including a day centre and night centre, outreach to rough sleepers, help with housing and welfare benefits, skills training and specialist support for complex needs — in a welcoming and friendly environment. For many, contact with The Connection at St Martin’s is a catalyst for change. Encouraging each person to address the issues which caused their homelessness, helps them to gain the skills and confidence to make lasting changes in their lives.

The services have been developed to meet the varied, changing and specific needs of a diverse and dynamic client group of homeless individuals. They strive to be client-led and innovative in their work, and rather than seeing homeless people as a problem to be solved, they see them as individuals with talents and abilities to be nurtured and developed.  For more information about the work of The Connection at St Martin’s, phone 020 7766 5555, click here or e-mail
