When Parminder was sleeping rough on the streets of our city she stayed in a little covered area by Poundland because she knew there was a security camera to give her some protection.
We worked with Parminder to help her off the streets, and build her potted plant paradise.
"My little garden makes me so proud. I've built it up with lots of care and attention over the past year. It represents what I didn’t have when I was on the streets: safety, purpose and calm.”
How you'll be making a difference
All the items in our store represent urgently-needed products and service. Every purchase helps us provide Londoners facing homelessness this winter with the support they deserve. From Winter clothing to support Londoners coming off the streets, to essentials such as toiletries, toothbrushes and electricity and gas top ups.
Your purchase (and any Gift Aid contribution) will be used to fund the distribution of the product or service you buy. If a lot of people buy the same item and we have an urgent shortfall in other items, we will seek to even things up to provide the full range of vital services needed to support Londoners facing homelessness. This means that in some cases, some of your donation could be used for a different item or service. Whatever happens, we promise that 100% of your purchase will be used to fund support Londoners out of homelessness, for good.
