Make a difference.
The ultimate goal of many charities working to combat homelessness is to end it altogether. In spite of the tremendous efforts by local councils, charities and organisations across the breadth of the country — homelessness is still on the increase, and the number of rough sleepers is also rising.
When tackling street homelessness, a distinction needs to be made between meeting the day-to-day needs of street homeless people — for food, warmth, hygiene and somewhere to sleep, for example — and the challenge of finding lasting solutions to their problems to get them back into decent homes. While preventative measures and policies work to reduce the number of homeless, Action Hunger exists in the interim for their comfort and wellbeing. We don’t have the capacity to fight the root causes of homelessness, but we believe that organisations that do — such as the ones listed below — are where donations would be most effectively spent.
If you would like to donate to Action Hunger — of which we’d be sincerely appreciative — you can do so using the button below. Action Hunger’s Trustees and staff do not receive a salary or even draw expenses of any kind — every single penny donated is used directly towards our cause. Volunteers tending to the replenishment of the machines do not receive a salary, but can claim travel expenses of up to £4 per visit.
