St Mungo’s Hope funds

We know that losing a loved one can be one of the hardest things we may have to face. We also know that people often want the opportunity to celebrate and remember the lives of their loved ones.

Setting up a Hope fund in memory of your loved one can help make sure that the love they gave in their life lives on. Your fund will also help people experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives away from the streets.

All your support helps to give hope, a future and a home to the most vulnerable.

About St Mungo's

What is a Hope fund?

A Hope fund is an online place of comfort where your family and friends can come together to share memories, photos, and music that reminds you of your loved one. You can also make the wonderful gesture of lighting a candle in their memory. And it gives you opportunity to leave a special gift to St Mungo’s, ensuring that their legacy lives on in the work we do.

How does my Hope fund make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people?

St Mungo’s is at the forefront of efforts to tackle homelessness. Each night our outreach teams go out to help people sleeping rough to move away from the streets, and we provide a bed and support to over 2,800 people. We work to prevent homelessness and support people at every step of their recovery from homelessness.

Your donation could make the world of difference.

  • £15 could help towards food costs for a client moving into short term crisis accommodation.
  • £50 could help to provide someone who is homeless with access to a vital health check 
  • £250 could help to pay for a client to receive long-term basic skills sessions, increasing their self-confidence and employability.

What else could I do to fundraise?
