Have a heart - Give Smart

Posted 19th Feb 2020

People who beg need our help, NOT your money.

When you see someone begging, it’s natural to want to help. But very often, giving money can actually do more harm than good.

• A lot of people beg to feed crippling addictions to alcohol and hard drugs

• Quite a few actually have a home to go to – and there are a number of hostels locally.

• Giving money can discourage people in trouble from seeking professional help

Have A Heart, Give Smart are working with statutory, voluntary, faith based, business and other community groups to help people overcome the addictions and other problems that lead them to start begging.

Please support this vital work by not giving money to beggars but instead donating to one of these local charities who do fantastic work in Harrow.
