Homeless Charity in Hertfordshire

We've been there

We’re Feed Up Warm Up, a homeless charity in Hertfordshire. 

What we do is provide a safe, welcoming space, one evening a week, where guests can pop by to enjoy a hot meal and a chat, hear some live music, and find practical and emotional help. We also do homeless outreach, sending teams into our community to offer direct support where it’s needed most, right across Hertfordshire. 

Our story

It was a cold winter in 2018 when Shane Cole founded Feed Up Warm Up, driven by personal knowledge of how homelessness feels. When Shane was 17, and had just left foster care, he found himself on the streets over Christmas. 

Using this experience, and his background in catering, he rallied the community to open a drop-in centre for Hitchin’s homeless. Five months later, he was asked to open a second much-needed centre in Stevenage. 

“I feel like I am on the same page as our guests; who better to comfort and care for people going through a difficult time than someone who’s been there?”

I have never been in a position until now to be able to help
