Charities working with people on the street often need clothes, food and other goods. Please get in touch with them directly if you’re able to help.
We often share news on our Facebook page of appeals by Sheffield charities for donations of goods.

Depaul UK, a charity working in Sheffield, helps young people up to the age of 25 who are at risk of homelessness.
Volunteer hosts in Sheffield offer their spare rooms for a few nights a month to keep young people safe and off the streets. This prevents them from sleeping rough, "sofa surfing", or staying in unsuitable and unsafe accommodation.
