Covid 19 Emergency Appeal

Our response to COVID-19 and homelessness

Museum of Homelessness, in partnership with Streets Kitchen and other small groups have repurposed all of our activity and resource to frontline work and campaigning for our homeless community during this pandemic.

The situation on the ground is changing daily but despite media and public messaging around ‘getting everyone inside’ we think from our daily work in outreach that there will be a street population throughout this crisis.

Right now, due to services being closed and no public out to give donations, people are hungry, thirsty and scared.

We will be there for our community as long as they need us.

The immediate need 

 MoH and Streets Kitchen are currently operating a taskforce hub in Islington which is supplying food, supplies and support to people across the borough in emergency accomodation and those left on the streets.
 Our hub is also providing supplies, food and PPE to our sister taskforces in Hackney, Lambeth, Camden and Tower Hamlets.

 We have more than 100 amazing taskforce volunteers and we quickly developed methods to deploy them safely for our essential services.
This means having structures for safeguarding, psychological support and PPE.
This is not a simple situation, but with our partners we are doing our best to save lives in a scenario which is changing hour by hour.

Thank you.

Notes on our finances

We are a tiny grassroots charity and we keep things really lean financially. Only 11% of our expenditure is on running costs such as insurance and office rent, compared to 40% in other charities our size. (source: Channel 4 fact check)

There are no large salaries or big overheads. Nor do we spend money on fundraising or marketing. Our funds go on making amazing creative and heritage activity, campaigning for change and supporting our community members with paid work, bursaries or essentials like travel costs.
