Homeless this winter

The winter season can be a really difficult time for people sleeping rough. As it gets colder, it will become life threatening. But you can help.

Are you worried about people who are
homeless this winter?

Winter is always hard for people who are homeless. That is why it is vital we are still here, when they need our support more than ever. Help us bring people in from the cold.

Save two lives this winter

Your gift could bring someone who is homeless, and their pet dog, in from the cold this winter.

Without our hostels, people on the streets would face the choice between a warm bed and being with their pet dog this winter. No one should feel alone at this time of year. We’re helping best friends stay together.

Gunner gives me a reason to do something,” says Justin. “He’s my best friend. 

Your gift could help people someone like Justin get off the streets and into warmth and safety this winter. Can you help best friends stay safe, warm, together?

Donate items and food

Many of our residents are separated from friends and family at this time of year so gifts, meals and decorations are a simple way to show that someone cares.

If your organisation would like to donate gifts, meals or decorations to our services please contact Chirstmas@mungos.org for further details.

If you are an individual, or looking to donate other goods to St Mungo’s services, please read this guidance and contact supporter.care@mungos.org for further information.

Contact StreetLink

StreetLink urgently connects people experiencing homelessness with the local support and services available to them.

Please use the StreetLink app or website to tell services where you have seen someone sleeping rough so they can get the help they need. 

Lina faced a lot of danger on the street, particularly from drunk people. She felt like people didn’t treat her as a human. Lina called our rough sleeping referral service, StreetLink, and within a day, we found her.

“St Mungo’s gave me back my future. I can’t tell you what that means when you’ve faced what I did.”

Please help more people like Lina to get the support they need by using StreetLink.
