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 refers 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 Mungos with their homeless clients. After two successful setups at the St Mungos location, we donated footwear and thermals 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." - Visit our Instagram page to watch the full interview.

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 a 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 affected 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.

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. Your contributions will help provide a homeless person with a care kit that includes backpacks filled with hand sanitizers, face masks, gloves, first aid kit, socks, hand lotion, wet wipes, fleece, a refillable bottle, and some food. Key-workers will receive items such as face masks, hand sanitizer, hand cream, wet wipes, and healthy ready meals. To help support our Covid-19 response check out our Go Fund Me page.
