What We Do
At Depaul UK we empower young people experiencing homelessness. We provide emergency accommodation, supported housing and other services to help people rebuild their lives.
Our mission is to end homelessness and change the lives of people affected by it. We believe in a society in which everyone has a place to call home and a stake in their community.
Depaul UK is part of Depaul International, a worldwide family of charities inspired by St Vincent de Paul, a major social reformer in 17th Century France.
