Coronavirus Appeal

Help us be there for homeless people

For over 150 years The Salvation Army have been there for the most vulnerable. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the need is greater than ever. They urgently need our help.

The Salvation Army operates over 80 supported accommodation services across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. We call these services ‘Lifehouses’ because they are more than a place to stay, they are places where homeless people can receive training, advice and a place to rebuild their lives.

During the coronavirus pandemic our Lifehouses are remaining open with special measures in place.

Alongside Lifehouses we are opening our buildings to become safe night shelters for homeless people, with space for healthy separation. Our homeless day centres are now offering doorstep health advice and food parcels for those who have been given temporary accommodation, while night time soup runs are delivering hot food at a safe distance from our emergency response vehicles.  We are working hard to make sure the most vulnerable people are not forgotten about during these times.
