Changing the lives of women who have been sleeping rough on the streets of London

Women currently experiencing homelessness are facing the toughest of times.

Many hostels and refuges for street homeless women lack suitable facilities where their specific needs can be met.  By supporting the 18 Keys Project you will be helping to turn one such facility into a model of its kind – specifically designed for women with long term experience of rough sleeping in London. 

Your donations will enable us to create a new communal space for all eighteen residents, one-to-one therapy rooms and additional studio apartments, at an existing residential site.  There will also be space to temporarily host additional people when the weather is severe, so more lives can be saved. 

This £1.8m capital project is led by St Martin-in-the-Fields Trust. The property is owned and managed by our partner charity, The Connection at St Martin’s.

By contributing to this capital fund you will help women gain the support, friends and skills they need to move to independent lives. You’ll also help create a blue print for how we support women who have experienced long term homelessness and have multiple disadvantages. We’ll be able to share the impact of this with our partners in the sector and help to eliminate the shortage of specialist provision for women living rough.

If you’d like to help women rebuild their lives please donate now; every donation counts.
