With the coming colder weather we have an urgent need for sleeping bags and small pop up tents.
We have a constant need for these items as they are stolen and ruined by bad weather. Our Outreach Team work regularly with rough sleepers and we are always looking for permanent solutions but tents provide some help in an emergency. If you can help with this please contact us at 01245 281104. Thankyou.
We are currently unable to accept any clothing or bedding donations – we are so grateful for people’s generosity but we have limited storage facilities. We will keep this page updated as to when our donations are open again. You can find a full list of items that we need or can be donated here

Helping the Homeless In Your Community
What should we do if we see someone homeless where we live? Should we give them money? Should we give them food? How can we best help them? During the current Covid-19 situation our Outreach Team have been out regularly visiting rough sleepers whilst working within government guidelines. But there are many other ways in which you can help. We have put together some helpful advice on the best action to take which can be found by clicking on the button below.
