The Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank is a project run by The Friends of the Homeless in Fareham and Gosport
The Friends of the Homeless and the Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank project are a Christian based organisation, with many of our volunteers coming from the local churches. However, we are very pleased to welcome anyone with a caring heart and willing hands as a volunteer.
We appreciate any help that you may be able to offer and this could be in a number of ways. It could be that you are able to spare a couple of hours once a week or may be able to help on an irregular basis to cover for people on holiday or sick. We also require assistance with secretarial work, fund raising and maintenance work at the centre.
As we are responsible for the wellbeing of our clients, we will ask you to complete a simple application form where we will require the name and address of a professional person to act as a referee. We reserve the right to decline your offer.
As a Christian organisation we also value your
prayer support for us and for our clients.
We are extremely grateful for any donations. Financial donations can be made online at the mydonate website by clicking on the donate button below. Our full charity name is Friends of the Homeless in Fareham and Gosport and our charity registration number is 1041277.
We are totally dependant on voluntary donations and very grateful for any assistance. We would also be very pleased to receive any donations of food, toiletries, nappies, clothing, sleeping bags or toys at our centre during opening hours.
