The Masterserve Foundation exists to raise charitable donations from members of the Masterserve Network and ARI and will distribute these donations to national and regional charities related to Social Aid and Development, and Healthcare.

In Quarter 4 we agreed to nominate homeless charities in the locations of the committee members.

Doorway - £1500.00

About the Charity

We believe that homeless and marginalised individuals are capable of change and will only achieve their full potential when offered a safe, supportive, empowering and non-judgemental environment – it is our vision to provide such an environment and meaningful activities which will help reverse the spiral of homelessness.

Caring in Bristol - £1500.00

About the Charity

Caring in Bristol is an effective local charity working to deliver support to homeless and vulnerable people in Bristol 365 days a year.

We are striving to create a society where everyone has a home, has hope and is a part of their community.

We deliver projects around homelessness that engage an amazing community of volunteers to bring people together to make change happen.

Coffeee4Craig - £1500.00

About the Charity

Coffee4Craig aims to end homelessness entirely and has been working to improve the situation for people who experience homelessness in Manchester and Cardiff since 2013. They offer non-judgemental advice and dignified services to anyone who needs it.

Coffee4Craig started in 2013 by giving out hot drinks and donations then began hosting ‘street kitchens’ three nights a week. They have gone from strength to strength and now run an indoors out-of-hours drop-in centre in collaboration with Centre Point North. They offer a five-nightly provision with extended sessions every Saturday and Sunday. They also run a food bank from Salford, and are involved in many networks and advocacy efforts across the city, such as the Manchester Homelessness Partnership. They continue to support the homelessness community in Cardiff too (which Craig was a part of).
