How you can help

We rely heavily on voluntary donations to provide support, advice, training and activities to everyone who comes to us for help.

All of our services are free of charge including food, drink and laundry services.                                             Any donation no matter how small is greatly appreciated. As you can see from the list below, there many ways you can contribute.

Your help is appreciated by so many

We desperately need your support to help us to change lives and help people out of homelessness.

  • Christmas Giving

Nathan (pictured above) was sleeping rough by the canal before he came to Shiloh. With our support he’s now in a new home, with a job and preparing for a new future. Read more about his story here. Please support our ‘Homeless at Christmas’ appeal to help us run a safe, warm place of refuge where we can change lives.

If you can give even just a little, we can give a lot, here’s how:

*  A warm welcome and good company
*  Two nutritious, hot meals 3 times a week including a delicious Christmas dinner
*  Expert help with housing, employment and benefits
*  A way out of homelessness for good through our year round mentoring, training, education and activity programmes
*  Advice with mental health and addiction problems
*  A health check and treatment from a local Nurse
*  Emergency Rough Sleeper Packs
*  A chance to shower, freshen up, get clean clothes, use a washer/dryer and have a hair cut

  • Christmas gifts

If you would prefer to purchase a gift for a guest, please consider donating unwrapped boxed toiletry gift sets or unwrapped new socks, underwear, gloves or hats. Please limit your gifts to just these items, as it makes it easier for our volunteers to distribute them.

  • Financial Giving

We are indebted to the people who have helped us to help others’ by their generous giving and support – we’re making a difference because of them!
