Welcome to roof

"Helping homeless people is an act of kindness and empathy resisting the tide of opprobrium hitting them every day."

Homelessness - it simply shouldn't exist in this day and age. It belongs to another era – a Dickensian time when extreme poverty forced people to take desperate measures just to survive. Nevertheless, in the last year alone, the number of people sleeping rough on England's streets soared by nearly a third, and now stands at more than double what it was in 2010.

ROOF is a small organisation set up by friends whose wish it is to support the homeless. We help feed and clothe our outdoor friends with a fortnightly street kitchen pop-up where we provide hot/cold food, drinks and snacks, clothes and underwear, toiletries and warming company.

To help the Liverpool homeless, ROOF plans regular outings and runs entirely on volunteers giving their own donations; whether this be food and drinks, clothing, toiletries, kind messages, or their time and energy as we get together during outreach evenings.

Adapt Outdoors is proud to support ROOF
