Get involved!

There are a number of ways in which you can help:



Streets of London funds some of the great work being done to support homeless people in the capital.

When people think about homelessness charities in London, there are a few big names that spring to mind. However, there are many other less well-known charities that do equally important work providing support to London’s homeless, but which often struggle to attract the same level of funding.

The need for more money is particularly acute at the moment. Funding cuts, coupled with a dramatic increase in the number of people sleeping rough in London in recent years (a 77% increase in 4 years to 2014) means there are many more people homeless, and fewer specialist support workers available to help them.

Using our knowledge and experience of the sector, Streets of London identifies and funds specific projects at a number of these charities each year, selecting projects where we believe the money (typically a grant of between £10,000 and £15,000) will make a real difference, providing homeless people with the support they need to get back on their feet and empowering them to make lasting changes in their lives.

This is only possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. With your help, we can fund further projects in the coming year that will provide life-changing support to people who are homeless in London.

Please lend us your support by making an online donation today: DONATE NOW

Alternatively you can make a text donation by texting STRE11 followed by the amount you would like to donate (£2, £3, £4, £5 or £10) to 70070 (e.g. text ‘STRE11 £5’ to 70070).

Thank you!



If you'd like to help London's homeless by raising money for Streets of London, we'd certainly appreciate your support!

You could take part in a Streets of London challenge event (for example, we have a 'Speed-Hike for Homelessness' coming up in September 2015 with Chamonix Hard Cross, and we'll be announcing further events in the coming months). Alternatively, you could come up with a sponsored event of your own choosing - either by taking part in an organised event (such as a 10K run or cycle race) and deciding to raise funds for Streets of London, or doing something else of your own choosing (it could be anything from to a sponsored silence to a parachute jump or sky-dive!).

Once you've chosen what you'd like to do, you can set up a fundraising page on BT MyDonate and then ask your family and friends to dig deep! Be sure to let us know about it by posting on our Facebook and Twitter pages (who knows, with any luck it might help you to attract a few more sponsors too).



Find out where your nearest homeless support service is and give them some of your time by volunteering. There are lots of homelessness agencies across London that would really appreciate your support, if you have some time that you can spare on a regular basis. Click here for details of charities where you could volunteer.



Lend your voice to petitions put forward by organisations campaigning for change in housing legislation and homelessness policy. Take part so that the government realises this is an issue that matters to people. Click here for details of some of the organisations campaigning in the sector.
