You can make a real difference

Homeless people often cannot be offered immediate housing. In the meantime, they need to try to keep safe and warm whilst sleeping on our streets. Whilst they are awaiting accommodation, we can provide street kit such as sleeping bags, backpacks, waterproof kit, suncream, first aid kit, dry bags.

Please see our News & Events page for regular updates on our latest food requests.

Regular Donations we need:

  • Adult sleeping bags

  • Clothing and belts

  • Shoes, boots, wellies (in winter)

  • Food and drinks (both fresh and non-perishable)

  • Toiletries
