For 50 years, Hestia has provided support and hope every step of the way of recovery.
Today, millions of people are experiencing domestic abuse, modern slavery and challenges with their mental health. Hestia believes no-one should suffer alone.
Together, we can make sure people find a life beyond crisis.
Over these 50 years, Hestia has grown from a group of generous volunteers who brought food to people living on the streets of central London to a specialist and multi-disciplinary organisation.
Today we support more than 10,000 people each year. Yet we have remained close to our values and the ambitions of those generous volunteers 50 years ago. In 2010 we were supported by 62 dedicated volunteers. Now, this has number has grown to more than 600 people, with their enthusiasm and skills making a big difference for those most in need every single day.
Our priority is still to meet the needs and aspirations of those who need our support and those who find themselves in crisis so that they can fulfil their potential and have lives beyond crisis.
