Making a difference
Goodwill gestures are to be applauded and respected. To make a real difference to someone’s life we need to understand their situation to ensure that they are given the right support to help them get back on their feet.
We advise visiting the websites of the agencies and charities for ways to donate directly and for any volunteering opportunities you may be interested in.
Alternative Giving Blackpool
Alternative Giving Blackpool is a partnership of local homelessness charities, support groups and agencies who can help those at risk of, or who are experiencing homelessness and ensure donations are distributed across those involved in the very best ways.
Rather than giving to people on the streets, Alternative Giving Blackpool asks you please consider donating to services that can help instead.
Find out more about Alternative Giving and how your donation can help.
