The Connection at St Martin’s is a registered homelessness charity in central London, located next to Trafalgar Square, which helps thousands of homeless people every year to move away from, and stay off the streets of London. The charity provide a range of specialist services, all under one roof, which help people address their homelessness, and make the necessary steps away from the streets so they can re-enter society and live ‘normally’ again.

The Connection holds arts workshops as a form of therapy, where people work at their own pace and are given the space to experiment with different art materials and ways of working. The lovely calm atmosphere helps reduce people’s anxiety and stress levels, which can be very high when you’re homeless and get in the way of people helping themselves. Regular exhibitions are held, so people can exhibit and sell their art to a new audience.
