For many sleeping rough and in crisis, Wayside Chapel is the only place they can turn to.

Wayside is the constant when everything else is in flux. It’s a safe place to come and feel welcome. A place where you can have a hot shower and a meal at the end of what feels like the longest day of your life. A place where there will always be somebody to sit with, to listen.

This winter, help us continue to provide the support people need, so anyone who walks through our doors receives the connection, practical help, care and love, they deserve.


We need your support to keep the most vulnerable members of our community warm and safe this winter.

Having a home isn’t just about having a roof over your head. It’s about having somewhere you are loved, somewhere you can feel safe, somewhere you belong.

We are here so anyone can find connection, comfort and warmth. And no matter what, our welcome always begins with a smile.

Please, make a donation today so we can deliver the love, care and support for those who need it most. Donate now.

"I love Wayside. To me, it's like home."

Allan was 10 years old when he became a carer to his mother who was living with a terminal diagnosis. Over the years she was sick, Allan stayed up all night making her hot drinks, cooking meals and carrying her from her wheelchair to the bed. In the background, his father was not coping. He turned to alcohol as his only solace which, unfortunately, led to violence and kicking Allan out onto the streets.

Allan first came to Wayside at 14 years old.

Through the most difficult times in his life, Allan always found comfort and refuge at Wayside Chapel – a safe haven he’d never known.

It was a space for him to not only eat a meal, but for him to build the confidence to connect with other people and start piecing his life back together. It also allowed him to focus on his love of music.

Your support will mean more people like Allan have somewhere they are always welcome.
