Donate today -  help make sure no-one needs to sleep rough in London again.

We’ve all seen people sleeping rough near where we live and work. Rough sleeping has more than doubled in London since 2010. During the past year alone, almost 9,000 people were seen sleeping out on London’s streets.

Welfare changes, soaring housing costs, and a shortage of affordable accommodation mean that more and more people are left with nowhere they can call home.  The London Homeless Charities Group (22 charities with decades of experience in tackling homelessness) are working with the Mayor of London and local councils to provide services to help people rough sleeping to leave the streets. 

Every Londoner can help too. You can donate to the London Homeless Charities Group so that we can offer more support to help people leave the streets and rebuild their lives.

Each member of this group has a specific project – such as providing emergency accommodation, longer-term support, or providing advice and assistance - that will benefit from your support. By giving your money to this coalition of charities, you can be confident that your donation will be distributed fairly and provide real help for people sleeping rough. 

However much you are able to give this summer, you will be helping someone who is in crisis to access the support they need to stay off the streets for good. 

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: 

“Even one person sleeping rough in London is one too many, which is why I’m asking Londoners to join me on my mission to end homelessness. 

“Last year winter Londoners generously donated almost £250,000 to homelessness charities, and made a record number of referrals through StreetLink, which helps outreach workers find rough sleepers and offer them support. This summer, we’ve once again brought together 22 charities running homelessness projects who Londoners can give money to, both through this single donation page. 

“I urge Londoners to get involved, donate, and join me in doing all we can to help make homelessness a thing of the past.”

The London Homeless Charities Group comprises:
Homeless Link is managing and coordinating the equal distribution of donations across the London Homeless Charities Group coalition. 

A bit about the process:
We are fortunate to have the support of GoFundMe who donated £5,000 towards the winter campaign and who have been incredibly supportive throughout the planning and launch stages. GoFundMe do not charge any platform fees.  A processing fee of 1.9% and 20p applies to all donations. If you choose to claim Gift Aid on your donation, 100% of this will be delivered to the charities. All funds will be distributed by PayPal Giving Fund to Homeless Link, who will distribute them equally between the 22 member charities. 

Please do get in touch if you have any questions about the appeal or our work. Contact lhcg@homelesslink.org.uk

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
