This autumn please support our Urban Harvest campaign by donating practical items to support our work helping people experiencing homelessness. The coldest months are sadly also our busiest and we use and give out a lot of items and clothing during these months. Your support can help keep people warm, dry, safe and can be the first step in someones journey to receiving support from us and a life away from the streets.

Please see the items we need this autumn and winter in the poster below. Please also share this with your friends, family and colleagues.
