We are a grass roots charity based in North London supporting rough sleepers and those struggling to make a healthy home foundation.
We are community focused and adapt our services by, listening to the people we support, seeing the needs in the community, and using our team of well rounded volunteers to support and empower others.
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 and services to positively impact the lives of vulnerable people affected by all levels of homelessness.
We are partnered up with the 'Domestic abuse housing team' 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.
We brought our trainer drive to support St Mungo's with their homeless clients.
After two successful set ups at the St Mungos location we donated footwear and thermal's to a significant number of homeless people.
Our next outreach to ST Mungo's will be our mobile mission.
Single Homeless Project (SHP) is a registered charity working to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people in London to transform their lives.
we have arranged to bring our mobile mission to SHP'S homeless clients..
providing them with 300 mobile phones with sim cards and chargers.

EVIE ROSE "It’s so great to see Adrian at hearts and helpers leading work for domestic violence survivors. He is the first man I’ve come across working in this field and I believe it’s really important that more men start leading this kind of work. Women have been doing this kind of work for years (and all of those I have come across have been incredibly supportive and so great at what they do) but with the majority of abusers being men and the majority of abuse victims being women, I believe it is men who hold the most responsibility and power to create change."

For the last few months we have been supported by the London fire brigade. We witnessed serious health and safety concerns within the home of a new mum. We flagged it with LFB and they came out to assist. (home safety check)
Working together we managed to track down the landlord and rehouse tenant. Both mum and baby are safe and doing fine in their new home.
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. .
Homeless people are highly susceptible to the Covid-19 virus. Unlike the average person, they cannot self isolate, and they do not always have the means to keep themselves clean. 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.
