Spitalfields Crypt Trust

For more than 50 years SCT has worked with thousands of people in east London affected by addiction and homelessness, transforming lives.

Our work provides a complete recovery pathway for people with alcohol and drug addiction, and with complex needs. This includes people who have experienced mental and physical illness, homelessness or the criminal justice system.

Every year, we provide food, housing, counselling, training, support, advice and a listening ear to hundreds of people. It’s a very human approach to people who have suffered from drug and alcohol abuse.
