Homelessness Social Action Directory

Below is the information of organisations working in the area of Homelessness:


RESTART is a homeless charity operating in London. Their aim is to help London’s homeless break the cycle of homelessness, to move from the streets, confront the issues obstructing their futures and return to society, feeling more empowered and resilient. RESTART's underlying principles are: that food and temporary shelter are important starting points in meeting basic needs but they alone will not create transformational change; that an effective response to homelessness must address root causes (not just symptoms) by seeking to address mental health issues and promote positive well-being; that for many homeless men and women, long-term, sustainable employment is essential if they are to lead fulfilling, independent lives; that effective impact relies working collaboratively and strategically with other organisations to deliver dynamic change. To achieve their aim, RESTART relies on volunteers to support drop-in sessions, act as mentors, or fundraise for them. To find out more visit their website.

The People's Kitchen, Newcastle

The People’s Kitchen supports homeless and vulnerable people and helps to fight hunger and loneliness for locals in need. The People’s Kitchen helps make life on the streets a little easier by sharing hot meals and packages of clothing, toiletries, food, mobile phones and sleeping bags. They also work with services to enable people to move off the streets and provide food, furniture and bedding when they move into their first home. Moreover, they offer friendship and professional services to improve mental wellbeing. The People’s Kitchen is proudly run entirely by volunteers, and the kindness of volunteers is essential to keeping their doors open. To find out more visit their website.
