East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action
East Ayrshire has many homeless people, around a thousand individuals or families becoming homeless each year.
Council staff and social services can provide accommodation and advice but churches working together can offer tangible help, along with the hand of friendship. Our motto is “each person matters”.
A hygiene pack is delivered to every man, woman and child who presents as homeless in East Ayrshire.
You can help by donating items that really make a difference from the list below. Collection boxes are placed in the porches of the churches.
Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, roll-on deodorant (no aerosols please), hair brush, face cloth, sponge, toilet bag, hand towel, nail brush, emery boards, toothpaste, toothbrush.
In addition, items specifically for males, females or babies:
Nappies, baby lotion, baby wipes, nappy cream, shaving gel, disposable razors, moisturiser, sanitary items.
