new referral

We are open for referrals for collection on 2nd October 2020

The Starter Packs that we make are freely distributed to people in need.  We believe in giving people a hand up, not a hand out.

As Starter Packs are a limited resource, they are:

  • Only available to homeless clients embarking on a new tenancy or planned programme of housing support and who have moved from temporary or unstable accommodation
  • Only available as an emergency provision, as and when supplies permit

Pack Collection

  • If a pack is approved, it must be collected only by the Referrer between 9:30 and 11:00 on Friday, from our centre in Smithies (please don’t bring the recipient)
  • Social distancing guidelines MUST be followed including the wearing of a mask
  • no collection will mean a new application has to be made


  • Deadline for new referrals: 5pm Wednesdays
