Your support matters

This winter, too many people are facing life on London’s streets without the security of a home or a warm safe bed.  And the numbers are growing, with a 21% rise in the number of people sleeping rough in the capital alone your support is more vital than ever.

Life without a roof over your head is tough, but when you’re also struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, it’s even tougher. It’s a relentless cycle that can feel impossible to escape from.

At SCT we don’t just offer people the comfort of a safe place to stay, we also provide the care, support, and skills they need to leave the chaos of homelessness and addiction behind. Our dedicated team of experts help people tackle the root causes of homelessness and addiction, and help people work towards a better future.

By donating during the Big Give your donation could be doubled, thanks to the generosity of our Big Give Champion, Julia and Hans Rausing Trust.

The difference your money could make.

The money you donate could contribute to supporting our:

  • Residential recovery programme, where people are supported by trained counsellors, support workers, and a therapeutic team, to tackle the root causes of homelessness and addiction.
  • Training and development programme, which gives people access to activities that improve their self-confidence, develop creativity and get skills and qualifications that help them move forward in their recovery journey.
  • Housing services, that help people find a permanent safe home, when they are ready to move on and rebuild their lives.
  • Our housing first service, which provides safe accommodation and support to people regardless of where they are in their recovery journey.

Commenting on taking part in the Big Give, Tony Chasteauneuf, CEO, Spitalfields Crypt Trust said:

“Addiction and homelessness are complex and hard to escape from and recovery takes resilience and determination. By working together, lives and futures are transformed. I’m proud of the part we play in people’s journeys, as they strive to transform and look to a better future.

“This winter we’re celebrating the creativity and talents of our students and residents, as they strive to transform and look to a better future. By donating during the Big Give you can be part of someone’s transformation journey, and help more people move on and rebuild their lives.”
