Before the word ‘isolated’ took on a new meaning, it described many of the people St Martins supports. Due to poor mental health and sometimes other factors, including addiction and illness, there are a number of people who receive regular contact from our Community Services team.
When we can no longer do them, we realise just how important social activities are in our lives. Imagine then, how important social activities are for people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness?
We are following government guidance in relation to the Coronavirus. We are committed to keeping the people we support and our team members safe.

A weekend of events focusing on homelessness was held at Norwich Cathedral, including a sleepout, a living library, a book talk and information about how the public can help.
The money was raised over the past twelve months mainly from collecting outside major supermarkets, an effort co-ordinated by Old Buckenham resident Michael Bartlett, who has been a committed supporter of St Martins for many years.
Members of the public are invited to borrow a book from a shelf at an information event on homelessness at Norwich Cathedral on February 8. This isn’t an ordinary book with pages and an index but a person who has experience of homelessness who has volunteered to be part of a ‘living library’.
