Give Today. Help Tomorrow.
Donate exactly what is needed.
Our mission is the relief of poverty among the street homeless/rough sleepers and homeless through the provision of items to support basic needs such as sleeping bags, ground sheets, survival sheets, blankets, clothing, food and toiletries. We also aim to improve the individual’s welfare through emotional support, even if it’s just a smile or by signposting them to other services. We endeavour to prevent harm to health by referring to emergency and similar services as and when necessary throughout Hastings, St Leonards, Eastbourne and Bexhill.
The items listed here are those currently needed by Warming Up The Homeless. When you purchase a donation through this store, your exact purchased item is sent directly to WUTH. They can then distribute or use the donated items as required, making a real, tangible difference to someone’s life. It also means that WUTH don’t have to spend money donations on items, and can instead use it for those things only money can buy.
There is no minimum order size, and all items include free delivery.
Warming Up The Homeless 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.
Homelessness: What does it mean?
The definition of homelessness means not having a home. You are homeless if you have nowhere to stay and are living on the streets, but you can also be homeless even if you have a roof over your head: if you are staying with friends or family, staying in a hostel, night shelter, B&B, Women’s Refuge, in emergency accommodation, in a squat, sofa surfing, living somewhere temporarily without a tenancy agreement, at risk of violence or abuse in your home, living in poor conditions that affect your health, living apart from your family because you don’t have a place to live together or living in a car or tent. Homelessness also means if living in a houseboat with no legal means to moor it, or a caravan or mobile home but have no means to legally park it.
