Common questions

How do I send my donation

There are many ways to give to Simon on the Streets, including online, by phone or by cheque. For more information please get in touch with us. 

Can I donate material goods?

As a charity, our core mission is to support our service users by providing emotional, personal support which is done through building relationships and trust rather than the giving of material items. 

We do not hand out such items to our service users on the basis that we cannot guarantee to fulfill their requirements next time they request such items from our outreach support workers. This then in turn can damage the trusting relationship we try to build which can hinder our goal of helping people with unmet complex needs achieve long-term and sustainable progress. 

Occasionally we request specific items, details of which will be posted on this page. If you're looking to donate material or food items, we recommend contacting St Anne's Resource Centre on 0113 243 1894.

How do I make a regular donation?

You can set up a standing order with your bank, simply fill in our direct debit form which can be found on our Ways to Give page. Or you can set up monthly payments through Just Giving. If you have any questions simply contact us.
