The Friends of the Connection at St Martin's

The Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride is organised by The Friends of the Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields, a charity whose sole aims are to raise awareness about homelessness, and raise funds to support the work of The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields. 

The Connection is a registered charity in central London which provides advice, care and support, to around 4,000 homeless and vulnerable people every year. It offers a range of specialist services – including a day centre and emergency night centre, daytime outreach to rough sleepers, skills training and career advice, activity programmes and specialist support for complex needs — in a welcoming and friendly environment. For many, contact with The Connection is a catalyst for change.

By encouraging each person to address the issues which caused their homelessness, The Connection helps them to gain the skills and confidence to make lasting changes in their lives.

The Connection’s services have been developed to meet the varied, changing and specific needs of a diverse and dynamic client group of homeless individuals. In everthing it does, The Connection seeks to build on people's strengths, and work with, rather than for, its clients.
