Sadly, we had to 'pause' our direct support to our local homeless population and those in danger of homelessness since 16th March. Now that lockdown has eased, we're working to get back to a socially-distanced breakfast service as soon as it's safe to do. Meanwhile, we're buying pre-paid £5 Greggs vouchers for outreach workers to give to rough sleepers who they come across on their rounds - see our Facebook page for details.
During lockdown, we've also re-directed food donations to other partners/agencies/voluntary organisations including Booth House, Swindon Night Shelter, Great Western Hotel, Food Collective and responded to direct requests for help.
Big Breakfast Plus ("The Breakfast Club') is an independent charity supporting and serving homeless people in Swindon since 1993. We welcome more than 400 different individuals every year who are rough sleeping, sofa surfing, or have no access to cooking facilities or income to pay for food.
We believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we’re the only charitable organisation in Swindon who provide a free cooked breakfast, cereal and toast 7 days a week, with unlimited refills of hot drinks and juice. We’re proud to serve over 7,500 breakfasts a year, Monday to Sunday.
It's also an opportunity for our guests to meet and socialise in a warm and inviting place - a safe place for support workers from other charities and agencies, including Swindon Borough Council’s Housing Options team, to pop in and get to know them over breakfast and inform them of the help available.
We're now based at the Day Centre at The Haven in Queens Drive (run by Swindon Night Shelter).
We're really grateful for the fantastic support that we already receive from Swindon's community. This is a great opportunity for you to join those supporters, and help us to continue offering this vital service, while having a flutter.
Please sign up today - thank you for your support and good luck!
