Religious community groups of many faiths play a central role in this charity. We believe our work is a wonderful example of people from different backgrounds working together with the central aim of alleviating homelessness. Regardless of religious faith, we share an ethos that recognises an inherent dignity in everyone.

Here are a few examples of how you may like to get involved:

  • Make a donation, Glass Door does not receive any funding that impedes our open access policy. Thus, we rely on donations from the local community. Find ways to donate here
  • Arrange special collections during harvest, Christmas, Homelessness Sunday and/or Easter. If you are interested in running a collection, we ask that you please take a look at the kinds of things we currently need
  • Hold a fundraiser by organsing an event, stall or a collection in aid of Glass Door. Do let us know if you are planning something so we can support you. 
  • Provide the free loan of your premises and organise volunteer teams to run an emergency night shelter. This generosity provides the backbone of Glass Door, allowing us to run shelters in what would otherwise be an under-utilised resource overnight.

World Homeless Day: 10 October 2022

The purpose of World Homeless Day is to raise awareness of the issues surrounding homelessness and provide opportunities for the local community to get involved, while taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides.

The concept of 'World Homeless Day' emerged from online discussions between people working to respond to homelessness from various parts of the world.

The Inaugural World Homeless Day was marked on the 10th of October 2010 and since its founding, World Homeless Day has been observed on every continent except Antarctica, in several dozen countries.
