Located just moments away from Victoria station, The Passage is doing all we can to support those at risk of spending a night on the streets of Westminster, and for those that do, to move them into accommodation as quickly as possible. We have over 40 years of experience in assisting and inspiring people to transform their lives.
The Passage is 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.

Over the last four months The Passage has seen even more people seeking help as the costs of rents and mortgages is fast becoming a real housing crisis for many.
In our Autumn Newsletter we speak to staff at The Passage who support those experiencing homelessness, and those who have been a victim of modern slavery.
From temporary accommodation to forever homes
Here at The Passage we are dedicated to supporting people through every step of their journey, from street to home.
Earlier this year, we proudly opened two newly refurbished accommodation projects, Passage House and Bentley House. Together, they will support around 225 people who have experienced homelessness, each year.
The projects are an important part of our long-term strategy to end homelessness in London, with Passage House providing 37 en-suite units and a rapid-response service for those who are newly homeless, and Bentley House offering homes for life for 20 people who have a long history of being street homeless.
In February our Royal Patron, HRH Prince of Wales visited The Passage to open the two new accommodation projects and said: “Both these projects give a vital route out of homelessness, ensuring those accessing these services have a place they can truly call home. Every time I come to The Passage I am always struck by the lasting impact of their work.
The work that I have seen first-hand over many years is the reason I know that ending homelessness must be thought of as more than simply a wishful aspiration. Instead, it should be viewed as an achievable goal, one that working together we can and must accomplish.“
