Breakfast with a difference
Big Breakfast Plus has been supporting and serving the homeless in Swindon since 1993. Over 25 years (and goodness knows how many breakfasts later), we’re as committed as ever to providing a warm welcome and a hearty cooked breakfast for homeless people, 7 days a week.
But it doesn’t stop there. Big Breakfast Plus gives homeless people the chance to meet and socialise in a warm place, as well as easy access to a variety of support services including housing, welfare, and addiction support. That’s breakfast with a difference.
As winter draws in and we’re living with Tier 2 restrictions we are keeping in touch with our guests through links with other agencies and Swindon Borough Council.
COVID restrictions mean we’re still not able to return to the Haven for the time being, but we have been handing out vouchers to our would-be guests, which they can exchange for a breakfast at Greggs. Thank you Greggs for helping out.
We are busy making plans so that we are ready to re-open as soon as we can. And we really hope our volunteers and supporters are staying safe and well.
Sponsor a Breakfast
For just £5 you can make sure a homeless person has a hot, freshly cooked breakfast with toast, cereals and unlimited refills of hot drinks. How much you give is up to you and you can make a one-off or a regular donation.
Volunteer With Us
We have an amazing team of staff and volunteers who are dedicated to supporting and serving the homeless in Swindon. So if you’re passionate about people and want to make a difference, we want to hear from you!
Fundraise For Us
From fundraising feasts to fabulous fun runs, a fundraising event or sponsorship challenge is a great way to show your support for Big Breakfast Plus and help us continue our work with homeless people in Swindon.
Support for homeless people.
Big Breakfast Plus is open between 7-9AM, 7 days a week at St Lukes Church in Broad Street, Swindon. We offer a warm welcome and a free cooked breakfast for homeless people, people who are sofa-surfing and those who have no access to cooking facilities or money to pay for food.
As well as providing a hot meal, Big Breakfast Plus also offers easy access to outreach workers from local homeless support organisations such as Threshold Housing Link, Swindon Night Shelter, Nelson Trust and Swindon Borough Council. These partner agencies can offer advice and signposting to help with housing, health, drug and alcohol addiction, employment and other matters.
