We are a group of community volunteers dedicating several evenings a week to go onto the streets of Derby to provide hot and cold food, drinks, clothing, bedding and social interaction for the homeless, rough sleepers, and vulnerable people who need our help.

Food is generously donated from many people and organisations within the City, and we have a number of volunteers who support us with the hot and cold food preparation on a regular basis.

Since starting in May 2015, we have built up a close bond with many of the people who need our support through taking time just to listen to what they want to tell us. We are also committed to complementing and working with the other agencies and organisations within the City who have responsibilities for the homeless and rough sleeper population.

You can find out more about our activities on our  Blog, or visit our Facebook page.

If you would like to support us through making a donation of money, time, food, clothing etc please visit our Donations/Support Page

  3. Hi
    I have driven passed you many times and noticed the hard work you do and want to get involved. I am a student at the university of Derby and I am part of the union of students. I will contact the union president as well as the university faculty to see what we can do to help. I also am a counselling and psychotherapy student so could offer an ear to those who need support.

  6. Hello there,

    Are you interested in accepting about 30 cupcakes for distribution?
    A friend has recently made a small batch for my wedding (30) but she has made them prematurely. I do not want the to perish as they will not keep until end of January.

    Are you at the Bonnie Prince Charlie this Saturday?
