How to help in cold weather

Make 2019 a year of hope for homeless people

With temperatures set to drop over the next few weeks, we need your support more than ever.

We’ll be sending out extra outreach shifts to reach as many rough sleepers as we can to encourage them into the warmth and safety of our Emergency Accommodation. Please help us to continue this vital work.

  • Just £5 could buy someone a hot meal, shower & clean clothes.
  • £40 could buy someone a night’s stay and specialist support to help them off the streets for good.
  • Stuart’s story

    “The outreach team found where I was sleeping… they told me about the shelter where I could get some sleep and get some food, get my laundry done because when you’re on the street you can’t do that.

    ‘I’m going to be safer here’, that’s what was in my head. A lot of us want to change, we just struggle with it. With the help staff here have given me, I finally got there.”

    Since working with us, Stuart has recovered from his addiction and moved into housing.
