St M-ungo's It probably says a lot about St Mungo's that when we take people off the street, we find room for their best friend too. Being in St Mungo's means a clean, warm bed in a safe haven. It means decent treatment and friendly, acceptable help. There never has been any taint of chilly, Victorian charity about St Mungo's. It's probably one of the reasons why the Association has been so successful over the years. But that very success has brought its own problems. Demands on us grow year by year. People who were in long stay mental institutions are now semipermanent guests in St Mungo hostels. We make it our policy not to turn anyone away from our direct access hostels if it can be avoided. And once we accept people we do all we can to rehabilitate, retrain and resettle them. So we have set ourselves very high standards indeed. Will you help us maintain those standards? We would be so grateful and so would the homeless of London, not to mention their dogs.

Please would you send whatever you can afford, with the coupon below, to: the St Mungo Association Charitable Trust, Room I, Atlantic House, 1-3 Rocldey Road, London W14 ODJ.
