Who are we?

We are Active Christians, the Ministry of Homeschool Social Enterprise (1146794).

The Ministry started in 2015 when we started to give food, clothing and pastoral support to rough sleepers in Birmingham. Since then, the Ministry has expanded to offer food to families and individuals in need.


On a typical outreach night, we serve anywhere between 15 and 70 rough sleepers on the streets. 

We currently feed between 500 and 700 people per week through our food bank.

Since our records began from just one of our surplus food suppliers, it is estimated that we have:

  • collected 1040 times
  • collected 27029 kg of food
  • distributed the equivalent of 67989 meals and
  • saved 86406 kg of CO2

These are the stats from just one of our 4 main suppliers.

Through the outreach we have also helped many people to transition to accommodation and have saved lives though offering timely medical assistance and suicide prevention on a number of occasions.

The challenge

Since 2020 and the emergence of the cost of living crisis, we have seen a significant increase in demand for our food bank services. We have therefore had to increase our effort to meet demand.

As a result, our costs have increased and it has become increasingly difficult to pay the bills required to keep the service running.


The Solution

We are looking for Active Christians Partners. We would like individuals from the community to partner with us by donating an amount they can afford on a monthly or regular basis. Your donations will help us maintain the running costs of our homeless outreach and food bank services. If you've been looking for a life-changing cause to give to then we'd be happy to have you on board. 

How we’ll spend the money raised

We need to pay the costs of petrol, vehicle maintenance, charity utilities, stationary,  website maintenance and supplies that we need to carry out our service.

Without these essential running costs covered, we simply cannot continue to provide our important service.

We are  currently 100% crowdfunded and we appreciate the donations of anyone who can help to keep us going.

We are grateful for donations of any amount, however would you consider leaving a monthly donation of £5, £10, £20, £50, £100 or more to keep us running? Having a reoccurring donation helps us to spend less time fundraising and more time serving.

We currently survive 100% off the gift of individual donors. The more donations we receive, the more people we can feed and the bigger impact we can have.
