We want to see a society where everybody – no matter what their background – has a positive future. This is because when somebody turns their life around, everybody benefits – their families, their children, the community they live in and society as a whole.

The people we help are facing huge challenges – poverty, deprivation, mental health issues and crime. However, we are working with our partners and local communities to do something about it – supporting people to turn their pasts into positive futures.

Our staff

We are a diverse team with a wide range of experiences and backgrounds.

40% of our staff have first hand experience of the issues currently facing the people they support.  Some are former clients who have trained through our Peer Advisor Programme and use their past experiences to inspire and enable others.

We have teams with locally recruited staff established across the UK - in London, Eastern England, Wales, Yorkshire, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Annual Review 22/23

Each year, we produce an Annual Review which reports on our impact and key developments at St Giles, alongside first-hand accounts from our staff and their clients.
