About Us

Museum of Homelessness (MoH) was founded in 2015 and is created and run by people with direct experience of homelessness. We do not yet have our own building and we are seeking a permanent site.

Museum of Homelessness, led by it’s community, does four things:

We we make tomorrow’s history by building the national collection for homelessness ; we take direct practical action in support of the community; we fight injustice with our independent research and campaigning and we educate on homelessness by working with artists and creatives to make unforgettable art, exhibitions and events.

The Dying Homeless Project

The Dying Homeless Project is a long-term project that remembers the stories and lives of people who die homeless in the UK. As well as being a memorial, the project is also an ongoing campaign for change.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism started the project it ran from October 2017 – March 2019. They documented that a shocking 800 people died whilst homeless. This hugely important work from the Bureau has been explored at the All Party Parliamentary Group on Homelessness and has prompted the Office for National Statistics to begin to collect some data on the deaths of homeless people, however not the full story as to how and why people have died.

Most of us involved in MoH have lost people dear to us far too early due to homelessness. This is a project that we feel strongly committed to continuing, so that we can honour those lost in our community and fight for change.

Collection and Archive

The Museum of Homelessness has a small but growing collection of objects and archival records drawn from various organisations, individuals and through its projects.

Although not publicly accessible they can be viewed on request.
