Big Breakfast Plus

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.

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.

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.

We’re getting excited!


After 18 months of being closed due to the restrictions of COVID19, we plan to restart our service from the middle of January 2022. We will reopen at the Café at The Pilgrim Centre, Regent Circus, SN1 1PX, a central location which will make it easy for our guests to visit us.


Our new opening times will be 07.30-09.00 Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


There will be a new Shift Leader in charge of the Breakfast Service. We are urgently looking for additional volunteers and there is an enquiry form on the Get Involved page if you’d like to join 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 based at The Pilgrim Centre, 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.
