Homeless-Friendly rewards organisations who pledge to examine their cultural procedures and remove any barriers to those without a fixed address. This is in the form of a pledge.
As a leading not-for-profit social enterprise with expertise and experience in the voluntary, public and private sectors, we can also offer advice on how to become homeless friendly.
Homeless Friendly pledgers will also be encouraged to share good practice and useful contacts as we strive to remove barriers and help those without a permanent address.
We are proud to say that we are a registered charity (1182814)

We recently received a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund this will enabled us to expand the kits and ensure that they continue to be offered to this vulnerable group of people. If you would like to help us or contribute items for please reach out to us. During the winter months we also provided Winter Warm Kits which comprise of a small ruck-sack with hat, scarf, gloves, socks and hand warmers.
