The Story of Slough Outreach
After some research & training to see if the need existed, this included taking part in a ‘Sleep-Out’ to raise money for night shelter with a local charity and the MP of Slough, Tan Dhesi, we launched our project on Monday 18th December 2017 with the help of a group of kind compassionate volunteers, serving hot meals and providing warm clothes to the homeless and vulnerable in Slough and Windsor. Within weeks, we had successfully co-ordinated a 7day homeless outreach by promoting and networking with other groups and charities to make sure hot meals are made available for the homeless and vulnerable people in our society, serving Slough & some evenings in Windsor.
We are passionate volunteers, wanting to change the lives of those the society has forgotten by providing hot food, warm clothes, and much-needed care & support with love.
Since starting our outreach in Slough and Windsor, we have come in contact with lots of kind and charitable people with such good hearts, it’s so nice to see there are so many selfless volunteers wanting to get involved to serve humanity
We are currently working on the streets of Slough, Windsor, and Maidenhead in Berkshire and we occasionally visit other group sessions as advocates and are very much based in the community.
If anyone wants to get involved in any way, want to help us to help the homeless or just want to have a cup of coffee to learn more about what we do, please make contact
