Homeless Street Angels

£5 Survival Bags

Now that the winter months have arrived and the nights become colder, our homeless friends will continue to live on the streets until we can help them to their forever homes.

At times through this winter, you will probably walk/past/cycle one of our homeless friends, and they will likely need a friendly hand at some point! If you want to help but don’t know how, here is a quick way you can help this winter, for under £5!

      Hello, this blog was based upon the experience we have working with the homeless. We would like to think we know quite well what they may need and thought that making a blog post about this might help people who may want to give to the homeless but would prefer not to give them any money. Thankyou for your comment, Jess x

    First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!
