Helping homeless people for 20 years

Join the hundreds of restaurants that have made a difference with StreetSmart

StreetSmart is a fabulous charity that remembers the homeless in our city at a time of year when we should be thinking about others. More importantly, our guests agree.

Marcus Wareing, Chef, Restaurateur

Run a restaurant? Helping won’t cost you a penny.

Electronic tills record donations, so administration is minimal. Just collect the total amount at the end of each month or at the end of December and pass it to us. The £1 donation is added to the bill after the service charge and VAT, and so does not affect your VAT returns.

StreetSmart’s ambitions are to connect the lucky citizen who can dine out with the unlucky ones for whom dining out means queuing up in front of foods banks.
