Through our services we support over 13,000 people each year. Here are some of their stories.
I have gained everything by going to Toynbee Hall. I had lost my marriage, my job, my self-respect. Everything. But due to the support from them, I regained my self-respect and my self-esteem. I don’t know what I would have done. I wouldn’t be here today without them – that’s for sure.”
Thank you so much for your support. You gave me the chance to learn and to do things myself. You were gentle and treated me with a lot of respect. When I came to you I felt really alone, and was terrified I was going to lose the house. Now I feel I can manage all of the household finances and I don’t feel scared anymore.”
I used to think that the kids who messed around in class had nothing in common with me, but being in the Make it! group- a group I never imagined being a part of, helped me to see people differently”

The last time we asked teachers to describe George, the words used were ambitious, thoughtful and a natural leader."
I am so happy with my teacher because the way she is teaching me is helping me to learn quickly. I can do things on the computer that I didn’t know I could do, and do simple things like top up my oyster card. I would like to give thanks to Toynbee Hall for this opportunity they gave us.”
