About Us

Streets of London (registered charity number 1155242) funds specialist support for people who are homeless in London, and raises awareness about homelessness.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, in the last nine years Streets of London has made grants totalling more than £900,000 to fund some fantastic projects that offer life-changing support to homeless people in London. For more information about the projects we support, click here.

Mark Knopfler, Ellie Goulding, Dan Smith (Bastille), Justin Young (The Vaccines) and Ralph McTell are the charity's ambassadors.

We host annual fundraising events like our Sleep-Out and Night Walk, which are a great way for anyone to get involved to support the cause.

Over the years our music events have featured incredible line-ups including Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Billy Bragg, Dua Lipa, Clean Bandit, Mumford & Sons, Years & Years, George Ezra, James Blunt, Craig David, Jess Glynne, Rudimental, Jessie Ware, Tom Odell, Birdy, Kodaline, Jax Jones, Mabel, Not3s, Dermot Kennedy, Grace Carter, Ralph McTell, Seasick Steve and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.

Streets of London's #ComeOnHome prize draw in summer 2023 raised £60,000 to help people who are homeless in the capital. It featured prizes generously donated by some of the biggest names in music, including a signed guitar from Mark Knopfler, VIP tickets and a meet & greet with Coldplay, a signed boxset from Sir Paul McCartney, a trip to New York to see Bastille, and many more amazing prizes!

More than 200 people registered for our sixth annual Streets of London Sleep-Out in October 2023. The people who slept out raised an amazing £50,000+ between them to help tackle homelessness in the capital!

Global brands including Kellogg's Special K have generously supported our work and other corporate supporters include Marsh & Parsons (who have generously made us their chosen charity), Quandoo (who have sponsored our Streets of London Sleep-Out), LGT Vestra (whose Soup Market in Paternoster Square featured soup from some of the city's best restaurants and raised more than £10,000) and Elliott Wood & DMFK Architects (whose brilliant swiMIPIM charity swim event in Cannes raised nearly £10,000).

We also raise awareness - Streets of London aims to shift perceptions and challenge some of the stereotypes about who homeless people are, and to increase general understanding about the issue and what can be done to tackle it.

A few years ago we made a short film called 'We Were All 10 Once', featuring the charity's ambassadors as well as Tom Odell, Frank Turner and a number of people who were homeless at the time of filming.
