Hospitality and hope in the heart of Swansea …

more than ever during the Covid-19 crisis!

Matthew’s House exists to provide a warm and welcoming building in the heart of Swansea, with the expressed intention of being accessible for the homeless and most vulnerable in Swansea. We aim for it to have the feel of a home where hospitality is experienced by all who enter the doors, regardless of their background, beliefs or circumstances.

Swansea Together is an emergency collective. Together we are coordinating a collaborative effort to see food prepared and distributed safely on a daily basis for some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
