Alternative Angels

Feeding Those In Need


Alternative Angels, a Swindon-based registered charity, is dedicated to supporting our community's homeless and most vulnerable members. We provide home-cooked meals, snacks, and sandwiches, fostering a sense of belonging and offering a compassionate ear for those in need. Our mission extends beyond nourishment; we also assist individuals in accessing essential items and services.

Founded in 2016 by three friends who understood the effects of housing instability, we began by serving 15 people weekly in Swindon's Wyvern car park. Our impact steadily expanded, and even during the pandemic, we persevered. In 2022, we relocated to the warmth of the Pilgrim Centre in Swindon, where we now welcome approximately 100 people every Monday and Tuesday.

As the cost-of-living crisis deepens, we are witnessing a growing demand for our services, and we remain committed to supporting those in need, helping restore their dignity, hope, and sense of community.
