Help people shelter safely at home… supports community organisers and makes volunteering in your local community simple, safe and effective for everyone. Sign up today to help people in your street shelter safely at home:


Sign up as a Street Champion

Street Champions look after a street and lead the helping activities in that street. They are in touch with the people who are sheltering safely at home and work with local Helpers to complete their requests for help.


Sign up as a Volunteer

Helpers provide direct help such as collecting prescription medicines, running local errands and shopping for essentials. They work with Street Champions to ensure the right help is getting to the right people in need.

We’re working with communities…

Thank you to all the community organisers and volunteers around the UK who are caring for people in their communities and enabling them to safely shelter at home. Our aim is to support them and enable everyone to receive help from a trusted local volunteer:
