About Us

Founded in 2015, Museum of Homelessness (MoH) is a community driven social justice museum, created and run by people with direct experience of homelessness.

MoH tackles homelessness and housing inequality by amplifying the voices of its community through research, events, workshops, campaigns and exhibitions. MoH also provides direct support – bursaries, mentoring, training and practical support – to its community members.

Together we collect and share the art, history and culture of homelessness & housing inequality to change society for the better. Together we find hope in deeply divided and difficult times.

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.

This section of the site contains a monthly selection of an object or story chosen by a member of the MoH community and although not publicly accessible they can be viewed on request.
