Help us support struggling families

This Christmas we want to reach out to as many struggling families as we can by bringing joy and hope into their lives this Christmastime.

With furlough ending, an increase in the number of redundancies, the ending of the Universal Credit top up and energy costs spiralling, families are struggling more than ever. Thousands of people will turn to The Salvation Army for help this winter. In over 650 communities across the UK, we will be doing all we can for them, whatever their circumstances.

 In over 650 communities across the UK we will be doing all we can for them, regardless of their circumstances and without judgement. We will do whatever we can to provide families with the support they need.

During the difficult last 20 months we’ve continued to be there for families by providing food parcels, support for single parents and electricity top ups.  This Christmas, we’ll be supplying Christmas boxes filled with festive food and modest gifts – for some children these will be the only gifts they receive. With the help of our supporters and dedicated volunteers we’re able to help families in need this winter.

Please support our Christmas Appeal so we can provide food parcels, practical support and modest gifts for struggling families this winter.

A gift of:

  • £19 could help provide a box of groceries and modest gifts, so that families who are struggling in poverty can share a basic Christmas meal together.
  • £45 could provide an hour of one-to-one support work for five homeless people in one of our centres to help them get back on their feet and make a fresh start.
  • £112 could provide a Christmas dinner and the promise of companionship for 50 lonely older people.
