Homelessness Community - London

4Z0A9660_web.jpg
 
 

PURPOSE

 

To end homelessness by enabling individuals, companies and NGOs in London to collaborate to make it happen.

 
 
 

PROBLEM

 

There are so many homelessness NGOs, yet many don’t know what other organisations do or that they exist. There are so many people and companies who want to help, but don’t know how they can.

 
 
 

SOLUTION

 

The We Make Change Homelessness Community exists to end homelessness. We do that by:

  • Enabling collaboration between grassroots organisations and registered charities of all sizes.

  • Connecting individuals with skills to support homelessness organisations

  • Enabling companies to use their skills and resources to help end homelessness.

In one year the community has grown from a gathering of a dozen organisations to bimonthly meetings with over 50 organisations based in London.

 
 
 

CAUSES

 
  • Communities

  • Social Welfare

  • Rights

 
 
 

WHO IS INVOLVED?

 

The community is managed by Ed Kirwan, a campaigner, videographer and storyteller. He is supported by a small team who help to organise and grow the community.
