Support Cambridge Cyrenians

Help us to continue to support over 100 people who may otherwise be sleeping rough.

We believe in homes, not hostels.

This approach means we provide our accommodation through small, shared houses in residential areas throughout the city, helping homeless people to integrate into the community. Residents are actively involved in decisions affecting their house, and encouraged to take responsibility for their lives and futures, with support from our team of staff and volunteers.

Your support helps people to move away – and stay away – from rough sleeping.

Help Cyrenians residents make a fresh start

We give new residents a set of household and toiletry items when they arrive. Often people are coming from sofa-surfing, rough sleeping or temporary hostel accommodation and have not been able to bring many personal possessions with them.

Receiving a new pillow, duvet and bedsheets encourages residents to see their room as their own space and can be the first step to feeling settled and at home in their Cyrenians house.

We also accept donations of specific cleaning, sports, and art supplies for residents, as well as homeware like throw blankets and colourful mugs.

You can view our current wishlist and donate items directly via Amazon below or email to arrange a donation. Please let us know if you make a donation via Amazon so we know your donation is coming and can thank you when it arrives.

Our supporters and partners

Our supporters help to strengthen and improve the service we deliver to those experiencing homelessness in the city. Projects such as our community allotment, run almost solely on donations and add vital enrichment to the lives of our residents beyond their housing needs.

The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust

Join Cambridge Cyrenians as a supporter

We rely on donations to maintain our service provision for residents.

Regular donations from supporters ensure our services have sustainable and consistent funding.

Giving just £5 or £10 a month could help a person experiencing homelessness to feel at home in their accommodation and provide the fresh start they need to start a new life away from housing insecurity and rough sleeping.

By supporting Cambridge Cyrenians, you are helping people in Cambridge to move away from homelessness and into safe and secure long-term homes.
