    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    Story

    Huddersfield Change Product was set up to provide much needed, direct support to people living on the streets, sleeping rough or struggling in everyday life. As well as delivering food and essential items directly to the people on the streets, we are aiming to provide support and guidance for mental health issues, Addiction concerns, housing and rehousing, and signpost anyone who needs us towards a better life,

    Without a central "Hub" premises, a lot of the early work has been done directly from home and by using local village halls etc to organise our rucksack project and for team meetings. The establishment of a premises will not only give us the chance to have our own meeting place but will also give our "clients" somewhere to come for a warm smile, a meal, a hot drink and to see what items we have available to give out to them.

    In addition we will be able to work closely with all the other, more established services in our town so as to integrate and be able to direct people to the other services available.

    Huddersfield Change Project has been entirely funded from public donations so far but without continuing financial support, we cannot establish ourselves further and move forwards.

    Thank you for your donation and for your support.

      A January update to everyone who has donated to us & supported us so far. The money in the Justgiving page is secure until the Target date & will go a long way towards our target, which is not only to fund a storage & distribution premises & Soup Kitchen but will also help us to Register ourselves as a Charity officially, as our "Income" so far is not enough to reach that goal. We use the donations of Soup, Clothing, Chocolate etc on a daily basis in our on-street deliveries & to the local hostels we support & work with. Thank you xx
