We support rough sleepers, the formally homeless and those who are transitioning into new accommodation by providing them with goods to support their day to day needs, ease financial burden and create a better living environment.
Our work falls into two categories, rough sleeper support and re-housing support. These services are available to those affected by chronic homelessness, and vulnerable adults who have been made unexpectedly homeless. For more information on access to our support visit our services overview page.
Working with communities across London, our mission is to provide essential goods, to positively impact the lives of those affected by all levels of homelessness.
Working with the community: We run a quarterly trainer drive, where the local community donate unwanted, quality and clean footwear. After vetting the footwear we distribute them to the local homeless population. This raises awareness of chronic homelessness and brings the community together to support those in need.
We are partnered up with Enfield Council to support victims fleeing domestic violence.
How it works: when an individual has been urgently rehoused they may have zero/low income and struggle to make a fresh start away from their abuser. To support their transition into independent living, we provide relevant home starter kits. The council refer people in need of our charity and we make sure they are provided with household goods and services.

Homelessness is rising, the housing crisis is the greatest challenge facing London today.
By working with a network of businesses and sponsors across London, we make sure that we get the most out of our funding and donations. By engaging with different members of the community, we can pool resources and make a joint effort to improve the lives of those effected by homelessness. .
In conjunction with local food banks and shops we are able to provide packs of food essentials to the people we support. For example, someone who is re-housed due to domestic or gang violence, is unable to go to a food bank freely without fear. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have developed our services so that we can provide emergency food staples to vulnerable people, on low incomes, who may be susceptible to complications.
Self isolating, keeping clean, washing our hands and making sure we have enough food is not an option for everyone. During the pandemic we have extended our services to support those who need extra help.

They are are in direct contact with the public every single day. Homeless people often have other underlying health concerns and it is vital that they get the support they need at this time. We have put together Covid-19 support kits, for more info check out this page.
