Over 300,000 people in the UK are either homeless or living in inadequate accommodation. 94% of homeless people are unemployed, 72% have some sort of mental health illness and 56% have a long standing physical impairment. With such startling figures, As-Suffa initiated their first outreach project to aid the most vulnerable of our community, with a vision to make a change.
What began in 2012 with good intentions and a few volunteers handing out warm drinks and meals to people sleeping rough on our streets, has by the grace of Allah, expanded nationwide.
The As-Suffa Homeless project runs 5 times a week from our site in Birmingham. All our food is freshly prepared on the day and served hot. During the month of Ramadhan, our service provision increases to offer food every day from our Birmingham and Walsall sites.
Alhumdulillah, we are now well established in 7 cities – Birmingham, Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Liverpool, Sheffield and Walsall.
Since its inception in 2012, alhamdulillah, As-Suffa Outreach’s Homeless programme has served in excess of 500,000 hot meals to the homeless across the United Kingdom.
We have represented the work we do in respect of our Homeless Food projects at the Housing and Homes Overview & Scrutiny Committee. Our operation is becoming increasingly recognised among service sector and statutory organisations.
All our projects are run by our dedicated volunteers and generous donors, who share our vision and see the impact the outreach has.
If you would like to join us, whether as part of an existing project or you have an idea for a new project, please get in touch.

Lost for words. For those who are really passionate about studying the deen of Allah. There is no place like As-Suffa. Very hard to explain but one has to experience being around those ulama from as-suffa to understand where i am coming from. May Allah increase their knowledge and give them jannat firdaus for the great work of deen that they are doing.
