Help Provide Essentials to Homeless

Homelessness is still homelessness even if it is Summer

Donate today to help provide essential items to individuals currently experiencing homelessness.

This Summer thousands of individuals sleep rough across England. Since 2010 the number of individuals effected by homelessness has dramatically increased and the number of rough sleepers has more than doubled since 2010. During the winter months, homelessness draws a lot of focus with more night shelters becoming available, an increased number of donations and  discussions on homelessness taking place more frequently in the media. Rough sleeping in the summer months can be just as treacherous and as dangerous as sleeping rough in winter. Rough sleepers remain vulnerable to violence, sexual assault, heat stroke, dehydration and abuse.

In October 2017, Lifetimes charity launched two homeless projects, Woman 2 Woman & Men Matter 2. Woman 2 Woman is a project that aims to end period poverty for women currently effected by homelessness in the local area by providing care packs, that contain wipes, deodorant, socks, knickers, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste and a tooth brush to those in need. We believe that these items will allow homeless women to regain some freedom and restore some dignity, basic rights we often take for granted.

Men Matter 2 was born as a result of the high demand for these packs and the fact that there are more men currently experiencing homelessness than women. These packs contain similar items but the tampons/pads are replaced by a razor.

So far we have provided over 100 women and over 300 men, across South London with care packs that have been extremely well received. Over the Christmas period we were lucky enough to receive donations from local organisations, however due to the hot weather we are finding it difficult to source donations for these much needed packs. We want these projects to run for as long as possible so we can reach as many individuals in need as we can. We therefore need your help to provide these essential items over the summer and Autumn months, items that act as more than just toiletries, in many cases they increase confidence, dignity and freedom. We want people to know that Homelessness is still homelessness even if it is Summer!

 A care pack costs around £5 and our aim is to raise enough for 200 packs, please give what you can and DONATE TODAY!

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.
