3 years with The Connection at St Martins
I’m now into my third year as a Trustee of The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields (CSTM) homeless charity in London. Homelessness is once again, unfortunately, on the rise across the UK and particularly in London.
During the past year, CSTM has enhanced its client and staff experience by carrying out a succession of focus groups with stakeholders from across the charity. This included focus groups on CSTM’s workspaces, outreach services, night centre team, day centre team and Westminster team.
These focus groups have been extremely useful for the board. As a result, we are introducing a three year programme of change and improvement including external expansion with partner agencies. We will also seek to diversify our funding base with demand expected to maintain its current level or increase over the next three years.
The Connection launched its annual Christmas Appeal earlier this month. Please get involved and donate.
