Our Mission Statement

The Whitechapel Mission is dedicated to providing a lifeline to the men and women caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy and lasting productivity.

Our goal is to help people to help themselves, giving them the confidence they need to become independent, which we do through practical support and advice and by teaching them the life skills they need to succeed.

We believe everyone deserves a chance, regardless of their background, race or religion.

We are open every day of the year and expect to see as many as 300 homeless and vulnerable men and women each day. And we do this without any public funding at all.

We know that we can, and are, making a positive and lasting difference to the homeless who ask for our help.

Todays Volunteers

We welcome volunteers from:

Mills & Reeve LLP

Volunteers play a crucial role within the Mission, serving breakfast, sorting clothing or working one to one with people who are homeless.
