fbpx About Us
Mick Clarke and The Prince of Wales

Our vision is of a society where everyone has a place to call home.

We are also the first homelessness charity to highlight the links between modern slavery and homelessness in London, and develop a pioneering Toolkit to enable other homelessness organisations to give survivors the support they deserve.

Meet Mick Clarke, Chief Executive

Starting his career as a youth worker, Mick later moved to work with young people who had experienced homelessness. He worked for several homelessness organisations before joining The Passage and is currently a member of the Advisory Panel for the Anti-Slavery Commissioner.

As Chief Executive of The Passage (since 2009), Mick is responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation and ensuring that The Passage grows and develops to meet the ever changing needs of our clients.


Our Royal Patron – HRH The Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales first visited The Passage in 1993, with his mother Diana, Princess of Wales. He then became Royal Patron of The Passage in February 2019. In the years since, he has visited many times, both publicly and also in a private capacity to spend time with the people that The Passage helps.

Our Patron – Cardinal Vincent Nichols Archbishop of Westminster

Our current Patron is Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, who joined us in 2009.

On being appointed as Archbishop of Westminster he took on the duties of Patron of The Passage. As soon as he was appointed Archbishop Vincent was keen to visit The Passage and spend time in the Resource Centre getting to talk to those we support.
