Our history of helping homeless people

St Mungo's Broadway was formed in April 2014 by the merger of two well established, respected homelessness charities; St Mungo's and Broadway.

St Mungo's began helping people sleeping rough off the streets in 1969. It then developed many ground breaking services including; the first specialist project solely for mentally ill rough sleepers, funded by the Government; the first specialist project solely for rough sleepers who drink heavily; the only specialist project solely for elderly rough sleepers and, more recently, the first Recovery College in the homelessness sector.

Broadway was created on 1 April 2002 from the merger of two London charities that, between them, had been supporting homeless people for more than 20 years. Broadway always recognised that the solutions to homelessness were as varied, complex and individual as the people it supported. Its services, projects and activities delivered practical support and guidance to help homeless and vulnerably housed adults on their journey from street to home.
