At Hearts and Helpers, we help those affected by homelessness both on and off the street. We provide goods and signposting through our rough sleeper support scheme. Once someone has transitioned into new accommodation we provide re-housing support.
Those affected by homelessness may face a spectrum of issues. Therefore it is important that we identify the support needs of each person on a case-by-case basis. We have a simple application process, which identifies those most in need.
People are often referred to us through social services or social housing providers. To ensure our services and funding make the most positive impact, applicants must meet our support criteria. As a rough guide, support goes to those based in London, with low/zero income and also meet at least one of the following:
· Suffering from chronic (long term) homelessness
· Rough sleeper
· Recently rehoused lone adult fleeing domestic abuse
· Recently rehoused lone adult fleeing gang violence
· Unexpectedly rehoused lone adult Low/zero income or on certain benefits.
If you or someone you know could benefit from our services fill in the contact form.
Any charities and local councils who would like to work with us please email: firstname.lastname@example.org We aim to reply to all queries within 48 hours.
All queries are dealt with in strict confidence. If acting on behalf of someone else please seek their permission first.
Chronic (long-term,) homelessness is on the rise, and life for those affected can be tough. Our aim is to provide rough sleepers with goods and signposting to ease their day-to-day struggles. To find out more read our rough sleeper support section.
We support the transition into new accommodation by providing a variety of home starter kits, white goods, and furniture. These consist of a mixture of new and quality second-hand goods, ensuring that we support receive the most benefit and that our funding and donations go as far as possible. Read our re-housing support section to see some of the goods that we can provide.
To solve many of the negative issues caused by chronic or unexpected homelessness we need to work together as a community. This is why, while carrying out our services we offer literature about other charities and organizations that may be able to offer support. It is important that we pool our resources for the greater good. So that we can provide the best service to the community, we often consult and work in conjunction with other services, charities, and shelters.
