Coronavirus Crisis

Help us be there for homeless people

During the current crisis, the need to help  people experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping is greater than ever.

The Salvation Army are working hard to make sure the most vulnerable people are not forgotten about at this time. By day we are providing breakfast and lunch to people experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping housed in temporary accommodation, and by night we are serving hot food at a safe distance. We are working hard to make sure the most vulnerable people are not forgotten about during these times.

Throughout lockdown our Cambridge Corps have been feeding 100 homeless people 3 meals a day, that’s over 300 meals being prepared every day, watch the video below to find out more.

Alongside this additional work The Salvation Army operates over 80 supported accommodation services across the UK and the Republic of Ireland year-round. We call these services ‘Lifehouses’ because they are more than a place to stay, they are places where people experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping can receive training, advice and a place to rebuild their lives.

During the current crisis our Lifehouses are remaining open with special measures in place, but we can only keep running our services with your support. If you are able to, could you make a donation today?
