Did you know...
Field Lane is a modern charity with a long and interesting past. It started in the notorious “Field Lane" area, which has now been incorporated into Saffron Hill, London, EC1. Andrew Provan, a London City Missioner, came to the area in 1841 to teach children and young people. He established the charity in response to the poverty and problems that he witnessed. Early supporters included Charles Dickens who wrote about the charity’s work in “Household Words". He also used the area called Field Lane as a setting for Fagin’s den in Oliver Twist. Field Lane has continued to provide care and support to the most vulnerable throughout its long history.

The charity tailors support to the needs of every individual it works with. It provides compassionate, innovative and individualised care whether it is in its community services, supported housing, nursing care or its residential family support centre.
