    Weʼve raised £2,886 to Support Brentford's Homeless Shelter

    Funded on Thursday, 15th August 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    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.

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
