Donate items

66% of the people we see sleep rough on the streets in all weathers, with others staying in emergency shelters, hostels or even sofa surfing. Donating food can help us serve hot meals, your unwanted clothes can keep our friends warm and dry, and unused toiletries, new: underwear and socks can help to make those who sleep rough feel human again.

Please help us by donating urgently needed items. Alternatively please donate a £ gift by clicking on our donate button, this will help to fund our core work and we will only buy what we need. It also helps us pay for increasing fuel and utilities costs, especially at this time of year.
