Coats collected for the homless by Swanstaff Recruitment Kent

Swanstaff Recruitment have donated over 400 warm, waterproof items to charities across the UK. 

These charities are:

Love and Humanity Peterborough
Sanctus Chelmsford
AMAT Medway
The Sanctuary Gravesend
House of Mercy Gravesend
Maidstone Homeless Outreach
Medway Street Angels
Help the Homeless Colchester at Christmas

After the success of previous Christmas campaigns such as Swan Socks, Christmas Crates and Bundles of Joy, we are proud to have carried on the tradition of making a difference with donating coats and other warm items to the less fortunate this year.  The items were donated by Swanstaff employees, our temporary workforce and members of our local communities who all came together to ensure that the homeless are warmer this winter.

Homelessness is an increasing issue in the UK. According to Shelter (a housing charity) there are approximately 25,000 homeless living on the streets and at least 295,000 living in temporary accommodation. Approximately 1 in every 200 people in the UK are therefore classified as homeless and this number is still rising. So here at Swanstaff, we feel it’s our duty to make a difference throughout the year but especially around the Winter months.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who donated and helped us reach and exceed our target this year. Until next year…
