Donate exactly what is needed.
Derventio Housing Trust provides accommodation and support to people who are facing homelessness and related challenges and barriers. They use the private rented sector for shared and single occupancy housing. Everything Derventio do is strength-based, and focuses on people’s positives. Their support wraps around the person they are working with, and can vary from intensive personalised support to low-level support. They also offer a range of opportunities through Growing Lives, including arts, sport, and life skills. Employability services provide one-to-one support helping people move forward into or towards training and work.
The items listed here are those currently needed by Derventio Housing Trust. When you purchase a donation through this store, your exact purchased item is sent directly to Derventio. They can then distribute or use the donated items as required, making a real, tangible difference to someone’s life. It also means that Derventio don’t have to spend money donations on items, and can instead use it for those things only money can buy like electricity bills, courses for their supported adults or rental deposits.
There is no minimum order size, and all items include free delivery.
Derventio Housing don’t pay for their shop, and Give Today use just £0.50 of the item prices below to cover transaction costs and price fluctuations from suppliers. Give Today do not profit from the sale of any items on the website.

Derventio work with people facing homelessness and other challenges to make positive changes to their lives. Supporting people to find suitable housing and live independent and stable lives has benefits for the whole community. It can reduce crime and anti-social behaviour. It means that people are healthier and frees up health and social care resources. It also means that more people are in work, education or training, which is good for the local economy.
Since 2010 Derventio have welcomed more than 11,000 people into their housing, support and employability services. That number represents countless achievements – some big, some small, but all important in their own way. Shania is now claiming the right benefits and is on track to clearing her debts. Carl has learnt some therapeutic exercises to improve his mental health. Dean has moved into a private rented house after being homeless.
