Here are the fantastic homeless charities we have been lucky enough to partner with so far.
We’re Glass Door Homeless Charity, London’s largest open-access network of emergency winter shelters and support services for men and women affected by homelessness. Our vision is a world where no one has to sleep on the streets of London, and we’re working every day to achieve this. By partnering with churches to provide shelter and support, Glass Door is committed to supporting people get – and stay – off the street.
Choir With No Name
The Choir with No Name runs choirs for homeless and marginalised people. They’re a diverse bunch of folks; all genders, all colours, all ages – everyone is welcome. They were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build up your confidence and abilities.
New Horizon Youth Centre
We are a vital support network for 16-21 year olds who have no one else to turn to. We provide everything from hot food, showers and laundry to finding them accommodation, training and employment. We offer counselling, drug and alcohol support, health, fitness, art, music and communication skills workshops – everything they need to create a positive future.
HOPE worldwide, Two Step
HOPE worldwide, provides a housing service ‘Two Step’ for single homeless people. We are able to help 20-25 homeless people a month find accommodation so that they are able to move on with their lives. We work in partnership with night shelters, day centres, councils and other charities who refer people to our service. One of our great assets is the network of relationships with landlords, agents and other accommodation providers we have built since 1993.
From our centre on Deptford Broadway we offer services for homeless people. As well as people who sleep rough, we support those who are vulnerably housed; sofa surfing or living in temporary accommodation. People who have nowhere to live can come to our Gateway centre to have a shower, do their laundry and eat breakfast. They can also access healthcare from visiting nurses, mental health workers and health professionals.
Northampton Hope Centre
Our work helps people experiencing the most acute problems of disadvantage, exclusion and marginalisation. As well as giving practical support, we focus on helping people to help themselves, provide support and services that will enable individuals to take back control of their own lives, and campaign with them against the causes of their disadvantage.
For over 28 years Wintercomfort has supported people who are homeless or at risk of losing their home in Cambridge.
We support men and women by offering them vital welfare services and opportunities for learning and training. We are a day centre open 7 days a week.
Brighton Women’s Centre
At Brighton Women’s Centre we’ve been supporting self-identifying women in Sussex for over 40 years. We help women from all backgrounds, facing all kinds of issues, to live happier lives. Women dealing with bereavement or trauma, women who have been through homelessness or the criminal justice system, survivors of abuse or discrimination – we’ve welcomed them all.
The Bond Board
The Bond Board has an impact on homelessness and the well-being of homeless and vulnerable private rented sector households. We provide Bond Guarantees in lieu of a cash deposit for private rented tenancies, along with a range of holistic support services in 1-1 and group settings. We enable vulnerable, homeless households to get housed, maintain their new homes and maximise opportunities to achieve a brighter future.
The project offers mediation to young people to prevent family breakdown and youth homelessness.
Raising awareness about homelessness in South Tyneside through a peer education project, involving young people who have experienced homelessness themselves.
This involves working with students from schools, colleges and youth organisations to highlight issues facing young people that are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless.
