Welcome to the Companions of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. We are an all-volunteer force delivering the charitable works of the Order of Malta in Great Britain. Our mission is to practise our faith and to practise charity.

What We Do

And Where We Do It

The Companions partake in all of the Order of Malta’s charitable activities in Great Britain.

Our work focusses on — but is by no means limited to — helping the homeless, the hungry, the disabled, the elderly, and the lonely.

In London every week we distribute food from a van, run a breakfast club and a soup kitchen for the homeless and hungry, as well as regular tea parties for the elderly.

At Oxford, the Companions organise a wide range of activities most days of the week. These include helping out with the city’s homeless, visiting the residents of local care homes, and helping with special educational needs pupils. Other Companions groups can be found at Cambridge and St Andrews.

Further groups are organised in Scotland, the Northern Marches, Birmingham & the West Midlands, Gloucestershire & Wiltshire, the South West, and the South East.

In addition to these, there are numerous spiritual activities such as Masses and Days of Recollection that are organised for the benefit of members of the Order, Companions, volunteers, and others.
