What we do…

At Hestia we support adults and children across London in times of crisis.

Last year we supported more than 9,000 people, including victims of modern slavery, women and children who have experienced domestic abuse, young care leavers and older people. From giving someone a home, to helping them to get the right mental health support, we support and enable people at the moment of crisis, and as they go on to rebuild their lives. We are supported by more than 300 volunteers across London who provide specialist skills such as art therapy, yoga, IT, gardening and cooking, as well as befriending and fundraising.

#CountdownToChristmas has officially started! Our CEO Pat Ryan joined in the festivities this week in East London (and got to meet santa himself!) "For some, the holiday season can be a lonely and sad experience. People struggling their mental health tend to be isolated so for us it is essential that our service's Christmas party is co-produced by the service users themselves! Being involved in the planning, decorating and running of the party makes sure noone is excluded and gives everyone the chance to celebrate and share the festive cheer with others." - Sandra, service manager at Hestia's #EastLondon #MentalHealth accommodation service.  #Hestia #Charity #Christmas #coproduction #christmasparty #fatherchristmas
‘For the last three Christmases, The @oldvictheatre has shown incredible generosity to hundreds of children at Hestia who have been made homeless because of domestic abuse. With their support we are able to provide gifts to children who have very little and who are spending Christmas in a refuge after having to leave everything they own behind. For many of the 300 children staying in a Hestia refuge across London, this will be their first Christmas free from abuse. Donations like these allow the children to make new, happy memories and to have a happy Christmas. Thank you!’ - Patrick Ryan, Hestia CEO
