The provision of essentials can often enable a service user to utilise the accommodation provision they have access to and aids the process of a positive transition, from accommodation to a longer, term, stable and secure home, a place the service user wants to be and a base for continued progress.
Items are sourced from our contacts and supporters second hand where possible. All items distributed are safe (PAT tested, Fire labels), clean, in full working order and checked prior to distribution. Purchasing new is considered if necessary.
We have been providing clothing and essential material aid since November 2014 and have provided the service for thousands of rough sleepers, homeless people or anybody who needs access to clean good quality clothing but cannot afford it. The service started from the boot of a car, then progressed to suitcases and now we sort and distribute from our HQ in Abbey Street.
We can collect used good quality men’s clothing all year round as well as new underwear and socks for hygiene reasons. If you would like to have a sort out of your wardrobe at home or carry out a clothing drive at work then we can arrange collection if you are not able to drop off.
