How you can help

Having completed our ninth winter in 2017/18, the Inn Churches project has grown from little more than an idea to a thriving charity with a volunteer base of over 850 that has provided over 8,000 temporary bed spaces for homeless people in the Bradford area.

Our work has been done on a fantastically small budget and we estimate that it has cost approximately £15 per person per night to provide a comfy bed, breakfast and a good meal in a warm caring environment.

However, with every success, our ambition and hope for the change that is possible grows a little further as we seek to make a significant and permanent impact on the problem of homelessness and housing vulnerability in our city.

As a result we are constantly looking for local support whether in the form of financial contributions, donations in kind of food and toiletries, offers of hosting and volunteers.

If you want to be involved in any capacity we would love to hear from you so please get in touch and help us change lives this winter.


We rely on our wonderful volunteers – over 850 of them, helping with everything from cooking to cleaning to playing games with guests.

Buy (or knit) a Homeless Beanie

Our Homeless Beanies are stylish and affordable – and not only does every penny go to support our work, for every beanie you buy, we’ll give another beanie to somebody who is homeless.

And if you’re a keen knitter, why not knit us a beanie?
