P. S - This page will still accept donations however we will not be able to claim a match gift on your donation from now on but we would be grateful for any further advert donations to allow us to continue supporting and impact the lives of so many!

This winter we’re funding night shelters that give vital hope to homeless people left out in the cold. Our matched fund campaign means you can make double the difference today.

Please enable us to make double the difference to homeless people today.

Homelessness continues to be a huge issue throughout England that we simply cannot ignore. The fact that life expectancy of the average rough sleeper is cut short by 30 years is appalling, and we need to act to limit its impact.

The common misconception that homeless people are substance abusers is harmful and closes many doors for people without homes. That’s why we’re running our Matching that Matters campaign, to open as many doors as possible to our night shelters. These provide desperately needed relief for immediate needs such as food, clothing, access to benefits, financial advice, employment training and healthcare. They also provide a warm place to stay during the coldest months of the year, when people are at their lowest ebb.

But we need your support to make any of this possible.

A kind benefactor has already given us an incredible £10,000 towards our campaign in the hope that our amazing donors will be able to match it collectively. This means that for every single penny you give, you’ll be having twice the impact.

Don’t miss this opportunity to touch more lives by turning your £50 donation into £100 and help us give hope to thousands of people this advent through Winter Night Shelters across England.
