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.

Relationships & 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.


Do you know anyone who is homeless or particularly isolated? Refer someone in need.
