Founded in 1965, Spitalfields Crypt Trust helps people facing homelessness and drug and alcohol addictions transform their lives

Homeless services

In the heart of Shoreditch, East London, our Drop-in service meets the basic needs of a wide range of people

Residential and day programme

Our supported housing provides a safe and reliable place for our beneficiaries to start their recovery journey

Move-on Housing

We provide two friendly homes for men who are ready to move onto more independent living

Training and Development

Having a good, structured work/life balance can be helpful in preventing relapse back into drugs, alcohol and homelessness

Long-Term Recovery Community

Relapse prevention is a big part of our work. For people in the later stages of recovery, our peer-led recovery community, Choices, helps prevent relapse
