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 460 volunteers across London who provide specialist skills such as art therapy, yoga, IT, gardening and cooking, as well as befriending and fundraising.
