Key facts


Giving a regular gift to HARP is an easy and powerful way to show your support to local homeless people. Even a small amount on a regular basis gives us the confidence to know that our services will be here for people not just today, but long into the future. And that gives our service users hope. Show some of the most vulnerable people in our community that you care. 

End rough sleeping


Making a one off donation to HARP means you will be helping a local homeless person today. Whether it's to help buy petrol for our minibus so we can take service users to confidence boosting activities, or to buy essentials to help someone move in to the their new flat, or simply to help with utility bills, you know your money will be put to the best possible use right away. 


Not many people know that you can leave a gift in your will to a small local charity like HARP, and you don't have to be rich to make a huge difference to our work through legacy giving. A gift of just 1% would help us keep local homeless people safe and warm all year round. And we can help arrange for you to have your will written for free.
