The Marylebone Project is a Registered Social Landlord set up through a partnership between Church Army and the Portman House Trust. We provide 112 long and short term beds to homeless women and offer essential facilities and support to women who visit our rough sleeper’s drop-in at the Marylebone Centre. The Marylebone Centre also delivers education, employment and training opportunities and meaningful activities in order to support service users into independent living.
The Marylebone Project social enterprise, Made in Marylebone, provides a catering service (Munch in Marylebone) and Central London meeting venues (Space in Marylebone). Through doing this it offers training and work experience for service users whilst producing ongoing funding for the Marylebone Project.
Those we support are often affected by substance misuse, unemployment, domestic violence and mental health issues. Whatever their story, we aim for the same ending; self-esteem, employment and independent living. We do this by providing shelter, emotional support, education opportunities, spiritual space, and events in a welcoming and secure environment.
To empower women to end their homelessness and live their lives to the full
- Hospitality - welcoming and respecting women into an inclusive, safe and secure environment
- Empowerment - equipping women to make informed choices and to have a voice
- Resettlement – encouraging and supporting women towards independent living
- Spirituality - giving each woman hope to live life to the full because God loves us all unconditionally
We believe that we are and will continue to make a lasting difference.
The Marylebone Project is supported by our patron Ellie Goulding.
