Brief History of the Trust

It was in 1972 that a group of volunteers began to provide services to people sleeping rough on the streets of Norwich. In 1973 St. Martins (St. Martins Housing Trust as it became) opened the doors of the first Norwich Night Shelter – in a garage in Cathedral Close provided by the Bishop. 40 years on there are still people sleeping rough on the streets of the city - but the Trust now provides a far more speedy and comprehensive range of services to meet their needs. This includes "on the streets" advice from the CAPS (Contact, Assessment and Prevention) team who are dedicated to engaging with, and providing a service to, all rough sleepers and people in extreme housing stress in the city. In addition to this frontline service the Trust manages a 30-bed direct access hostel (Bishopbridge House), two residential care homes (Highwater House and Carrow Hill Home), and a number of group homes and temporary accommodation projects. At the end of the period under review the Trust provided accommodation for 157 people in its hostel, care homes and various project houses in the community every night.
