Donating & Volunteering



The bottom line is that financial donations keep a charity like ours open. Every penny given is keenly felt and graciously accepted. In these times of austerity with our funding cut and costs increasing, it's more vital then ever. The generosity of others helps tremendously in keeping us running a safe and effective service 365 nights a year for those in need.

If you can at all help us financially whether it's large or small, individually or as a group, by raising funds through a collection within your office or at a local school or a charity fundraising then you would really be making a difference and for that we thank you so much.

Please make out cheques payable to Number Five Project and, if posted, sent to:
Number Five Project, 3-5 York Road, Guildford. GU1 4DR.

If you can help us with donations of foodstuffs or household goods, we have a quick list of current items we could really use below. Please do make sure any food donated is in date, in unopened packaging and derives from a commercial kitchen or from someone with a current food hygiene certificate. Thanks again.




Number Five has a small core of staff but is greatly aided by both regular and occasional volunteers who bring a breadth of talent to help out!

Currently we're not looking for any more volunteers to help of an evening, but if you have a skill like painting, plumbing, electrical work , window cleaning etc. all little things that help our service give back to the homeless in your local borough of Guildford, then please do get in touch.

Are there any obligations once I have offered to help?  There are no obligations in terms of the level of commitment or regularity: you might wish to offer your help as a one-off event, occasionally, or on a more regular basis, it is entirely up to you - we just appreciate any community spirit.

Due to the nature of the work we also ask that all volunteers be aged over twenty-one years. However, due to the nature of our work and our responsibility towards you and others, we ask all potential volunteers to read health & safety information and complete some paperwork before they start volunteering with us.
