Weʼre raising £2,000 to Support Brentford's Homeless Shelter

Brentford West London

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Brentford Homeless Shelter has been operating as a drop-in centre for 2 years now on a wholly voluntary self funding basis. We are open 2 evenings per week on Mondays & Fridays from 5.30 – 8/8.30 all year round. We provide:

Tea/Coffee/Biscuits etc on arrival

Soup & Bread

Main Meal


Clothing/Sleeping bags/Blankets & ad hoc items when needed (Bicycles/Signposting etc)

Takeaway meal/lunch for the following day

Individual Laundry service

English Classes on Fridays

Annual TB Clinic

Medical Service every 2nd Friday.



Winter Night Shelter: We have historically partnered with other venues to provide a Winter Night Shelter program for the last 5 years during the coldest 3/4 months of the year & in the last two have provided a 7 night a week overnight extension for 2 months for those at the end of the program that had found work – collecting rent over those 8 weeks to provide a typical month’s rent & deposit for our guests to move on with at the end.

This year with the growing need for capacity we branched out on our own & opened for 3 nights weekly. Ideally, we would like to provide 7 nights food & overnights for the coming season. We are actively seeking additional venue/s but currently can only commit to these 3 nights. If we can, we might stretch to provide just a drop in to give respite from the cold & food on additional evenings.

Over the last year we have provided 500 bed nights & almost 4000 meals to our local homeless community. With your help we hope to expand both the number of nights we open & the number of guests helped as well as broadening the services we have available.
