Business overview

The Whitechapel Mission has been serving the homeless and marginalised for over 140 years – including a day centre, skills training and career advice, activity programmes

At The Whitechapel Mission, we have been helping Londoners to help the homeless since 1876, meeting the specific needs of each man and woman who walks through our doors. First, we help the homeless by meeting immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. In our recovery programs, we address deeper needs for life-skills and job skills training, and addiction recovery. We measure our progress against four criteria, which indicate to us that a life has been transformed from homelessness to hope: connection to family, commitment to sobriety, a job and a place to live, and a plan for the future.

Today, The Whitechapel Mission is a results-oriented organization that is recognized as one of London’s most effective.

We meet basic needs

This is done by offering: hot breakfasts and lunch, showers, clothing, hairdressing, optician, medical care, dentistry, befriending and advising on: night shelters, hostels, benefits, identification documents, form filling, debt counseling, entitlements, finding appropriate help.

The Whitechapel Mission is a charity (registered charity number is: 227905). That means that we do not make any profits or bonuses from the work that we do. All of the money donated to the Whitechapel Mission is used only to help the many people who come to us for help and advice. In the last year, primarily due to social and economic factors relating to the economic downturn, our caseload increased by around 40 per cent, as over 5,000 different people used our services. Without your help and financial support, the Whitechapel Mission would not be able to provide the services that it does. The Trustees of the Whitechapel Mission are very grateful for all the support you offer.

Every single pound that the Whitechapel Mission receives is fully allocated to its designated project. Not a single penny is removed for other purposes. Read our 100% Donation Policy.
