Bringing hope where there is despair
Christmas, New Year and Bank Holidays. For most of us, it's a time of celebration, but for those who are homeless, it's too often a day of painful memories of wrong turns, families lost and forgotten love. The Whitechapel Mission is open every day of the year and Christmas is no exception.
We are already planning for Christmas 2019 and would welcome your involvement.
Our Christmas programme starts on Monday 21st December and runs until Saturday 2nd January 2021, where volunteers play an even more important roll in our service provision.
Our office will close for the Christmas holidays on Tuesday 22nd December and will re-open on Monday 4th Jaunary 2021. Our work continues as normal and can be contacted on 03000111600

Please call 03000111600 or e-mail [email protected] if you need to contact us over Christmas.
We are always grateful for gifts to suppport our work, but please bear in mind that we start work at 5am and can only accept deliveries before noon each day.
A list of our Christmas needs >>>
We have staff available to receive your donations and help unload your vehicle every day throughout Christmas from 6am until noon.
If it is not convenient to deliver during these hours, please ring the office on 03000111400 and we can attempt to arrange for a member of staff to be available at other times.
Please do not attempt to make your delivery outside of these hours without arranging it with us in advance. Items left on our doorstep will never get to us.
The Whitechapel Mission has vehicles used to collect food, clothing and gifts needed for our work. If you have gifts for the Mission, but are having difficulty getting them to us, then it may be possible for us to collect. Last date for Christmas collections is: Friday 20th December
We ask you to bear in mind that our vehicles are costly to run and therefore it is not possible for us to collect small donations.

Have you seen our Christmas Appeal on TV?
No? And you never will!
Your donations are only ever used for direct expense, to assist those in need and never to fund an expensive TV or radio advert.
