Barnsley Homeless Alliance


Barnsley Homeless Alliance is made up of organisations and charities that support local homeless people.  We work together to provide food, clothing, housing, medical care and substance misuse services to help give a future to those on the street through practical and compassionate support and advice.

We're often asked about how people can help and get involved and the generosity of people in Barnsley is fantastic and we'd like to give a greater understanding of how your time and money can be used in the best way possible to support those who are homeless or begging.  Helping rough sleepers and people who beg is not always about giving them money on the street.

There are many ways we can help people who, for whatever reason, find themselves in these circumstances.  You can help by telling us about someone who is sleeping rough, giving your time, money or donations.  All of these, how big or small, can support people to give them a brighter and healthier future off the streets.

Ways to Help: Every little helps,

  • Volunteering,
  • Donating clothes, toiletries, food or money.
  • Talking to those who are begging and buying them some food or a drink.
  • Buying a copy of The Big Issue from street vendors. 
  • Spreading the word about the Homeless Alliance.

Donate: By donating you're not just giving a homeless person a meal; you're helping make a big change to someone's life. text BARN05 plus the amount you'd like to donate to 70070

Tell us about someone who is rough sleeping: If you see someone who is rough sleeping,  you can report this to StreetLink so we can help.

If you are homeless or worried about becoming homeless, take a look at our Homeless and Housing Advice website or contact us through our online form
