6 ways you can support our Homelessness Services

Inspired by our dedicated staff and volunteers after watching BBC1's 'Paul O'Grady:The Sally Army & Me'?

Here's 6 ways you can get involved and support people experiencing homelessness.

  1. See people not labels: So many people experiencing homelessness feel isolated. Speaking to someone in need could make a real difference to their day.  
  2. Contact us: If you see someone sleeping rough and think they could benefit from support, please contact your local Salvation Army. In England and Wales you can also contact Streetlink via www.streetlink.org.uk or call 0300 500 0914. In Scotland you can contact Simon Community via www.simonscotland.org or call 0800 027 7466. In Northern Ireland you can contact the Housing Executive on 03448 920 900 and in the Republic of Ireland we advise to contact your local council
  3. Make a donation: If you wish to make a donation to support our Homelessness Services, please visit salvationarmyappeals.org.uk.
  4. Volunteer with us: If you are interested in volunteering with The Salvation Army please visit salvationarmy.org.uk/volunteer-for-us.
  5. Reach out for support: If you are concerned about a friend or family members' drinking or drug taking habits then please contact your local addictions agency and ask for support via www.nhs.uk/service-search.
  6. Keep in touch: If you would be like to be kept up to date with the work of The Salvation Army’s Homelessness Services you can subscribe to our Belief in Action newsletter via www.salvationarmy.org.uk or you can follow us on social media.
