Your compassion gives hope

Your generosity makes a difference

Over the last 25 years, the communities of Chichester and Arun have been so compassionate. So generous. Your donations of funds, food, furniture and clothing, time, skills and ideas have enabled thousands of local people in crisis to get back on their feet.

“It’s preparing you to put you back in society. It’s a real stepping stone.”

We understand the competing demands for your generosity, but we cannot do this without you.

So please, do read on. There are many different ways that you can help us – big and small. Please don’t underestimate how important a few hours of your time could be – helping us with a fundraiser, or volunteering in a kitchen, for example. Donating a piece of furniture, or buying something from our eBay shop. We are always on the lookout for van drivers, bucket collectors, cake-bakers, IT support. Your time and skills are invaluable.

See what’s needed

Now I am living in Stonepillow accommodation, I have the security I need to address other issues that have been a constant worry. I can’t thank Stonepillow enough for helping sort everything out and for helping me begin to get my life back on track.

Stonepillow Client

I work five days a week Monday to Friday. Tuesday and Thursday evenings are the only days the hub is open in the evening and are the only days I can receive support without jeopardising my income.

My previous feelings of uselessness and having no self-worth diminished. I was given responsibility, I was trusted, someone believed in me.

The hub enables me to clean up, freshen up after work. As a construction worker this is perfect as I work a dirty job and there is nowhere else which can provide me with this service.

Stonepillow's Recovery Service gave me a support network which meant I didn’t feel alone. Having a key worker and being around people in the same situation was invaluable and I learnt so much about myself.

On top of shower facilities the hub is a place where I can eat, talk and communicate with the staff and other members about my day, my feelings and any emotions I may want to get off my chest. They are amazing at what they do, and I’d hate to think what position I’d be in if this kind of help wasn’t available.

Square meals

Can you donate some cooking ingredients?

These are used by people starting out in their the own home, or by our volunteers to cook nutritious meals in our hubs and hostels?
