We are SIFA Fireside, the support centre for any adult in Birmingham that faces homelessness.

We all need support sometimes. SIFA Fireside is here for you when it feels like no-one else is. If you need support, here’s what we can do for you. Our Drop-In Centre welcomes homeless and vulnerably housed individuals over the age of 25 from 9am – 12.45pm, Monday – Friday. There, you’ll find job clubs, community nurse appointments, English language lessons, barber visits, cooking classes, budgeting workshops and more. You can find us at 48-52 Allcock Street, Deritend, Birmingham B9 4DY. From a hot meal and a warm shower to Tenancy Support, Employment Support and much more, we are here to get you back on track. SIFA are also available to provide advice over the phone on 0121 766 1700 between 9am and 5pm, from Monday to Friday. If you’re looking for support outside of these hours, emergency accommodation support is available from:

  • BCC Housing Service: 0121 303 2296
  • Rough Sleeper Outreach Team: 0800 880 7157

If you are able to support us, you can make a donation by using the Donate button below. For clothing donations, please call the fundraising team to arrange delivery on 0121 766 1700 (Monday – Friday, from 9am – 5pm).

The services people need to get back on track, all in one place.
