News: Emergency Hot Weather Appeal

Chloe and the Street Engagement Team giving out water and suncream in hot weather

Summer has arrived, and we are expecting very high temperatures throughout the UK this week.

This isn’t good news for everyone. Being homeless in extreme heat can be as dangerous as cold weather – with high risk of dehydration, sunburn and even sunstroke.

We are taking extra measures to help.

Our team is on the streets giving out bottles of water, sun protection and sun burn treatment.

We are working with our in-house NHS centre and calling emergency services where needed.

We are also extending our day centre opening hours to give people shelter from the sun when they really need it.

We really need your help.

Please donate to support our extended provision and help homeless people to stay safe this Summer. Thank you so much for your support.

Alternatively, you can donate items directly. We need:

  • Bottled water
  • Squash
  • Fruit
  • Crisps and other snacks
  • Travel-sized suncream
  • Travel-sized after-sun
  • Light-weight clothing, like T-shirts
