Support us as a Team

Businesses, schools, organisations and churches have all made a big difference to the people we help, supporting us through fundraising, donating and volunteering. From gifts in kind and sponsorship to challenge events and partnerships, there are so many ways you and your colleagues can get involved. Take some inspiration from below, contact us, or download our fundraising pack to get started.

Make us your Charity of the Year

Why not focus all your fundraising and volunteering energy on helping people struggling with homelessness in Bath, by choosing us as your charity of the year. We can help you fulfill your CSR aims. Plus, limited companies will pay less Corporation Tax if they donate money to charity (https://www.gov.uk/tax-limited-company-gives-to-charity).

Gifts in Kind and Donations

You can support us by donating items to people who visit our projects. Sleeping bags, rucksacks, furniture – we’ll be grateful to receive anything you can spare. You could even donate prizes for a raffle, or place one of our collection tins at your business, café or shop.

Fundraising at Work

It’s always fun to get your work teams involved. Why not hold a ‘dress down day’, donate a percentage of your monthly sales to us, or get involved with a challenge event. Ask your work to match fund any fundraising you do yourself.

Food Partnerships

If you’re a supermarket or food outlet, make us your back of store partner. We give out food for hungry people at our Soup Run, Lunch Box and Sunday Centre projects, and at our drop-in centre Lifeline. We’ll pick up your items and get them to people who need them.

Support us at Christmas

Winter is a particularly tough time for homeless people. You can help by holding a fundraising collection at your work or school. Last year we received cash and Christmas boxes from shops, hairdressers, finance companies, schools and churches. Contact us if you’re thinking of doing this.

Volunteering

We’re always grateful to have teams of volunteers support us with the big tasks, or professionals lend us their expertise. You could get involved with our Life Skills workshop if you have a particular talent, or help out at our Furniture Project.
