The Passage

The Passage runs London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people, helping up to 200 men and women each day. Passage House the largest property within their portfolio is a 40 bed hostel. Our specially trained engineers have been keeping these vulnerable residents safe and warm providing their heating and hot water needs since 2004. The residents of The Passage have mixed and varied support needs, and referred through one of the three outreach teams that cover Westminster. An increasing number of residents are suffering from severe and enduring mental health issues or very high levels of drug and/or alcohol use.
In 1993 Diana Princess of Wales made homelessness her first charitable priority after joining the Royal family, and was not afraid to meet those directly affected. Of the over £4 million a year it costs to keep The Passage going, only 33% is funded from statutory sources; the rest comes from donations from individuals, church organisations, charitable trusts and companies.
