The House of St. Barnabas

We are a London charity pledging to break the cycle of homelessness.

Our approach is driven by our social purpose to create a future where lasting employment is a reality for those affected by homelessness.

We recognise that gaining and maintaining paid work is instrumental to independence and security.




The Collective

The Collective, our contemporary art programme, consists of rotating exhibitions and a permanent collection.

Through The House of St Barnabas’ spirit of collaboration and commitment to nurturing talent, we invite artists, galleries and curators to either permanently donate or loan works to the club. We show a range of work, including pieces by Damien Hirst, The Chapman Brothers, Tracey Emin, Roxy Walsh and Tom Gallant.

If you would like to see our collection, we hold tours on the first Monday of every month.

Employment Academy

We run an Employment Academy that’s fully integrated into our social business, a not-for-profit members’ club. The academy offers 360° support, providing accredited qualifications from City & Guilds, work experience in a vibrant business, real job opportunities and mentoring.

Most vital to our impact and to the lasting success of our graduates is our ongoing assistance and focus on work and wage progression.
