Wycombe Homeless Connection uses gifts of goods in three ways.

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

Some food items go to help provide our winter night shelter.

In emergency, we assist people who are sleeping rough or destitute with food, clothing, toiletries and a sleeping bag. We discuss the circumstances that led to the emergency and how a repetition can be avoided; we aim to help people escape homelessness, not create dependency.

How can I help?

We have limited storage and are only able to accept donations of items that we can use. The list below changes frequently as supplies and stocks fluctuate. Our office is open on weekdays during working hours - before visiting, please call 01494 447699.

Note, we can only pick up in exceptional circumstances.

Thanks to generous donations, we currently have adequate stocks of food, clothing and bedding except for items listed below.
