Get Involved

Supporting and helping homeless men and women in Romford and surrounding areas. 

We are a little community with a big dream, please check out below to see how you can help and support us on our journey to helping the homeless and vulnerable. 

We are not funded by the government so rely on the kind donations from friends and family to keep our group going, all cash or online donations help us continue our work within the homeless community. 

If you cannot donate money but have items at home that your happy to donate, then please get in touch, Contact Us

We currently have an abundance of clothing but items such as toiletries, socks, gloves, hats and men’s underwear are always appreciated as they are repeatedly the first things requested. Please be advised any clothing or bedding being donated needs to be washed as we haven’t the facility to do this prior to handing them out. 

Do you have a spare few hours Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday evening from 8pm? Are you passionate about helping the community? Are you able to set aside your opinions and offer help to those that need it, no questions asked? Then volunteering with Friends of the Homeless could be right for you. 

Here at Friends of the Homeless we are always here to help come rain or shine. The volunteers all meet up at our meeting point, set up the table and with hi vis vests, patrol the streets (in pairs) looking for homeless men or women to help with hot food or drinks. 

We also share duties, some make hot food, some make cold but that not a requirement, all we need is your help and a little of your time.

Every donation contributes towards replenishing food and other necessary items such as toiletries and bedding. We are hoping for a more permanent place to reside as were currently working outside and it can get really cold in the Winter. We strongly believe that having a warm place to go to, would help us earn more trust within the homeless community in need of a hot meal and a good chat, thus in turn getting more people the help they truly deserve. Therefore donations will be used for hall or venue rental and due to the amount of items we have collected, the money would also contribute towards garage rental . 

You can make a donation to Friends of the Homeless on our JustGiving page, Pay Pal account or purchase items from our amazon wish list just by clicking the buttons below.
