Bringing hope where there is despair
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.

We thank you for visiting the website this morning.
The Whitechapel Mission, like most charities, is faced with the challenge of meeting growing demand for services with limited resources.
Markets Operations - Big Sleep Out
Some colleagues from Markets Operations will be taking part in the Big Sleep Out on the 7th August 2015, to raise money and awareness for the homeless people across London. In 2013/4 approximately 6,000 people were recorded as sleeping rough on the streets of London.
Fiona's Walking the Inca Trail
I am walking the Inca Trail in very high up Peru (spot the girl who hasn't been at altitude before) and decided I may as well try and raise some money whilst I'm at it. I'm raising money for The Whitechapel Mission which is a great charity in London that supports the homeless.
