Support us

Give money

Our Change for Good JustGiving appeal supports people recovering from homelessness to take those precious steps on the road to recovery.

Every donation goes directly to local support services that work with people who are experiencing homelessness or rough sleeping. Donations help at-risk individuals and families to rebuild their lives and enjoy a brighter future filled with hope.

We have a contactless donation point in the window of Half-Time. It can be found next to the YMCA in Westover Road, Bournemouth.

Give time

Volunteering can transform lives. There are plenty of opportunities across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to put your time and skills to great use.

Volunteering champions Community Action Network (CAN) have created a Volunteer Hub. You can discover local volunteering opportunities, find answers to commonly asked questions and learn about the benefits of becoming a volunteer.

To contact CAN, call 01202 466130, email hello@can100.org or visit the Volunteer Hub: https://can100.org/volunteering-hub/interested-in-volunteering/
