The Friends of the Homeless operate the Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank which provides help to anyone going through a crisis or in need of emergency support.
If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, we can help you.
The Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank aim to provide practical help for the homeless through providing food, toiletries, and occasionally clothing, shoes and sleeping bags if need arises. Vouchers for a free meal and drink are available for anyone sleeping on the streets.
These services can be accessed through our referral agencies. There are about 80 of these and they include Citizens Advice in both Fareham and Gosport, Fareham Borough Council Housing Office and Social Services, Gosport Borough Council Housing Office and Social Services, Health Visitors, Schools Outreach Workers, Doctors’ Surgeries, Probation Service, Women’s Refuges, Two Saints, Avalon/Inclusion and many others.
