Spitalfields Crypt Trust

We provide a consistent, face-to-face presence for homeless people or those at risk of homelessness in East London.

Our busy day-centres support people with practical necessities, such as food and clothing, and further support. We respond according to what people need, whether that involves practical support work, healthcare, food and drink, or simply offering a friendly community space.

We can help with:

  • Hot and cold food and drink
  • Toiletries, clean clothing and shoes, sleeping bags
  • Advice and links to relevant shelters, organisations, and agencies
  • Access to health services including vaccinations, sexual health advice, and ‘Health MOT’s
  • Veterinary care for pets
  • Signposting and referrals to other support services

Paul's Story

“It was so different at the SCT drop-in, the way I was treated by the team… They chatted and gave me warm clothes – it was just decent…

I still have depression but my volunteering at SCT’s homeless drop-in really helps me. It’s so important to me. It stops me thinking and having spare time. Making and serving food and drinks here gives me something to do before my work starts ‘cos I work the nightshift.”
