Helping London's Homeless
We became a registered charity which is non-profit on 6 June 2018 and continue to strive to help our homeless friends on a weekly basis along with the help of the amazing members of the public who donate items, essentials and money on a regular basis. We would not be able to do what we do with them.
Justine pillar runs her own business as well as the founder for Hands on hand out. She started up the charity after volunteering for Crisis back in 2015. “I became very aware that something needed to be done and made it my mission to do as much as i could to provide the homeless with everyday essentials but most importantly companionship and laughter. We have got such an amazing team and We have definitely exceeded my expectations of what I wanted to achieve.”

Paul took early retirement , and enjoys doing various voluntary roles including HOHO, “I always wanted to give something back but never had the time , and helping the homeless has been on my list of things to help with.HOHO is a fantastic charity to help with as we take the time to listen to our friends, and whilst we may not be able to assist, a trouble shared is a trouble halved. we operate in the Euston / Kings Cross area which is where I grew up and so holds a special place in heart.”
