This Christmas will be different for all of us. Many of us might not be able to see our family or friends during the festive period. For homeless and vulnerable Londoners, this time will be harder than ever.

Every two hours someone becomes homeless in London.  

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve been at the forefront of a collective effort to place hundreds of people who were sleeping rough on the streets of London, into safe, emergency accommodation. But we didn’t stop there. We helped over 300 people move into a place they can really call home for good. We need your help to find at least another 100 people their own permanent, safe and secure homes by Christmas. 

To help break the cycle of homelessness, we also provide physical and emotional support. We give people the life skills they need to build the foundations for long lasting change so the streets are left behind for good.

Many of the people SHP help go on to support their friends, family, wider communities and others who are forced into homelessness. When you help us to transform someone’s life, your donation goes much further.

This Christmas and despite the pandemic, SHP is here for you and the Londoners that are forced into homelessness.
