Hello, we are Big Breakfast Plus. A registered charity that provides a hot, freshly cooked breakfast and easy access to support services for homeless people in Swindon, 7 days a week. That’s over 7,000 breakfasts every year!

About Big Breakfast Plus

Big Breakfast Plus has been supporting and serving homeless people in Swindon since 1993. We are the only charitable organisation in Swindon who provide a free cooked breakfast, cereal and toast 7 days a week, with unlimited refills of hot drinks and an opportunity for homeless people to meet and socialise in a warm and inviting place.

Big Breakfast Plus is also a safe place for outreach workers from local support organisations such as Threshold Housing Link, Swindon Night Shelter, Nelson Trust and Swindon Borough Council to provide advice and signposting to help with housing, health, drug and alcohol addiction, employment and other matters.

We believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, that’s why we’re proud to serve over 7,000 hot and freshly cooked breakfasts to homeless people in Swindon every year! Over 75% of Threshold’s initial contacts with homeless people are made over breakfast.

Big Breakfast Plus is based at St Luke’s Church Hall in Broad Street and is open from 7-9AM Monday to Sunday. Annually, we welcome over 400 different individuals who are rough sleeping, sofa surfing or have no access to cooking facilities or income to pay for food.

Our guests are fiercely protective of the project and appreciate the devotion of staff and volunteers. Not only is the food hot but it is individually ordered and served, providing choice for those who have little or no choice in their lives.
