The House of St Barnabas

Breaking the cycle of homelessness in Soho.

The House of St Barnabas supports people affected by homelessness and social exclusion into lasting paid work. Originally founded by an order of Anglican nuns, the charity runs from a Grade I Georgian house in the heart of London where a not-for-profit private members’ club funds the work of the Employment Academy.


Currently 60 people a year undertake a 12 week course in Hospitality and Business Administration and receive 12 months of mentoring.

The vision is to make this 100 people a year. The House has its own chapel where cultural events, church services and graduation ceremonies take place. It’s now in need of major restoration and Allchurches Trust is pleased to have been the first to donate.
