Help us make a difference this Christmas
Christmas can be especially difficult for people who are homeless as they cope with not only increasingly harsh weather, but also profound loneliness resulting from often having nowhere to go at the most festive time of year. The financial pressure of Christmas can also see an increase in the number of people losing their homes and facing family and relationship breakdowns.

Christmas Gift Appeal
Some of our clients may not receive a present from anyone this Christmas, help make someone’s day by donating gifts or a shoebox full of gifts to make someone feel valued and cared for. This year we asked our clients what they wished for, here’s what they said:
Travel First Aid Kits
Puzzle book Books
Hats Gloves Scarves
Underwear inc vests
- All of the people receiving gift boxes are adults or young adults over the age of 18.
- The contents of each box do not need to be wrapped. Please wrap the boxes and lids separately to enable the managers to view the contents before allocating to individual clients.
- Please do not include alcohol or any products containing alcohol (this includes mouthwash, chocolate liquors, christmas puddings etc.) or any penknives or potentially dangerous items.
