Every day we are supporting Londoners off the streets into our shelters. Rough sleeping has surged by 24% in London in just three months. Help us welcome everyone to our emergency shelters with a gift.
A welcome pack is adapted for everyone we support but typically includes:
- Warm clothing
- Underwear and socks

What is Gift Aid?
Donations from UK taxpayers benefit from the government’s Gift Aid scheme. For every £1 donated, we can claim 25p at no additional cost to you.
When Blaise had to leave his family home, he had nowhere to go and was forced onto the streets.
“I have my own place and I’m stable. I’m just so happy with life. I’m so content with everything I have and I really couldn’t ask for more. I wasn’t that person before the Single Homeless Project. They’ve unlocked a part of my brain for me to keep moving forward. I feel I can be a beacon of positive hope for someone else now. I’ve never felt that way about myself before ever.“
Why should I leave a message of support?
Homelessness can be an incredibly challenging and lonely experience. That's why we ask you to leave a message of support with every gift - these messages really do make a huge difference.
About Single Homeless Project
We began in 1975 when a group of six homeless men in London teamed up to create the change they wanted to see. An end to rough sleeping and the cold, hard floors of warehouses – and a city where everyone has a place to call home and the chance to live a fulfilling life.
Today, we are the largest homeless charity dedicated to helping Londoners in crisis. Every year, we help over 10,000 Londoners to leave homelessness behind, to be seen, to be heard, and find a place to call home.
How we helped Zowie off the streets
After living a dangerous life on the streets for twenty years, Zowie is finally safe and secure in her own home.
"When I was 18, I had my daughter, but by my early twenties I was unable to look after her. I’d never had any support and just couldn’t cope.
My life is stable now. I am getting therapy for everything that I’ve been through. My daughter lives with me too, which feels wonderful. I’m even looking to start kickboxing classes to help me feel stronger and gain confidence.
I have so many things to look forward to now"
