Practical Giving

We do want you to donate supplies if you can please, to help those on the streets and those who have moved into a room for the first time.

We want to bless people with quality products and quality items that you or I would be proud to use or have. We are trying to help people feel better about themselves and improve their self –worth.

What happens to your donations ?

We ensure our storehouse is fully stocked. The team then make up wash bags for those we know who need them. We supply all our Sleepsafe guests with a wash bag. We provide all the bedding at Sleepsafe. We also provide some items for when people move into their room / home.

What is a Home Shop Referral form for?

This is for anyone who has got off the streets and is in genuine need to get items for their new home/room. This gives them £60 to spend at a shop/s of their choice. The form MUST be completed by a support worker or advocate and then sent to us to arrange the shopping trip.

Thank you for your kindness & generosity. If you want to help in any other practical ways please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Thank you for being part of their journey off the streets, brilliant!
