Thank you for your support of Wycombe Homeless Connection!

Wycombe Homeless Connection uses gifts of goods in three ways:

1. We provide people with basic household items when they move into accommodation.

2. We feed people during the Wycombe Winter Night Shelter.

3. In emergencies, we assist people who are sleeping rough or destitute by giving them food, clothing, toiletries and a sleeping bag. We discuss what led to the emergency and work out how a repetition of the circumstances can be avoided in future; we aim to help people escape homelessness, not create dependency.

How can I help?

As of 4th October 2019, we would appreciate donations of the items listed below.

Because we have limited storage facilities, we are only able to accept donations of items we can use. Thanks to generous donations, we currently have adequate stocks of toiletries.

We accept donations on weekdays from 10am until 12:30pm. Before visiting, please call us on 01494 447699.
