For the first time ever the Homeless Drop-in, run by Faith in Action Merton, is running at a loss. Find out more here.
Please help us to secure our future by making a financial donation.
Donate online – visit our JustGiving page, where you can make a one-off contribution or sign up to a regular monthly donation. In both cases you can take advantage of GiftAid, which will increase the sum we receive by 20% if you pay enough tax (see below for more details).
Please note: JustGiving charges all donors a “Voluntary Donation” on the ‘Your donation summary’ page, which you can decrease to a minimum of 50 pence (or other sum of your choice) by selecting ‘Enter custom amount’ and typing in your preferred sum eg £0.50. This sum is retained by JustGiving to cover their processing costs and does NOT go to the charity.
If you are able, you may wish to consider donating all, or part, of your UK Government Energy Price Guarantee Scheme payment or Winter Fuel Allowance.
Monthly Standing Order – these are enormously valuable as they help us to plan our budget. For a leaflet with a Standing Order and Gift Aid form, please click here. If you are already making a monthly payment to us, and would like to increase it, please let us know by replying to this email.
Please note: you must pay an amount of income or Capital Gains Tax equal to your total charitable donations each year.
Thank you for your support; together we can continue to help local homeless and vulnerably-housed people.
Other ways to help us
Donate food and other supplies We can gratefully receive donations while the Drop-in is open, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am to 2.30pm. For more about what we currently find most useful, go here.
Fresh, in-date food for breakfasts and lunches, preferably with advance notice.
Clothing The following are always welcome: new men’s boxer underwear, warm thick socks and warm outerwear. T-shirts are also popular. We also need men’s toiletries eg disposable razors, shaving foam, deodorant etc. Women’s clothing is also welcome, although demand is smaller.
Please note that we have limited storage space, so we may not be able to accept large quantities of donated clothes.
At Christmas we give all service-users a gift: donations of scarves, socks, gloves, underwear and beanies are particularly welcome at this time.
