Coming together to tackle homelessness

Join the hundreds of restaurants making a difference with StreetSmart

StreetSmart is a fantastic charity helping so many vulnerable people, who need our support now more than ever. It is good to know that we can help those in need by simply donating £1 each time we dine out.

Clare Smyth, 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.
