firstbasexmas2013_W300We need your support now more than ever.

Please donate today and help someone who is homeless and vulnerable to get the support they need to move on from life on the streets, and on to a more positive future.

We rely on your donations to provide our vital services, and every contribution makes a difference.

How Your Money Will Help

Each year First Base day centre provides food, support, advice, shower and laundry facilities and housing advice to people who are homeless and sleeping rough in Brighton and Hove.

We can’t change the past for the men and women sleeping rough on the city’s streets.  But together we can give the gift of a better future when they arrive at First Base.

£30 will fund a personal care package which will include:

  • A warm welcome
  • Hot meals daily, including a delicious Christmas dinner
  • A chance to shower, freshen up and get clean clothes
  • Laundry facilities
  • Medical treatment, optician and podiatrist
  • Expert help with mental health and addiction problems
  • Advice on housing, employment and benefits
