Support us – COVID 19 Appeal

Our response to COVID-19 and homelessness

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

 

The need right now

Until recently, MoH and Streets Kitchen were operating a taskforce hub in Islington supplying food, supplies and support to people across the borough in emergency accomodation and those left on the streets.
Our hub provided supplies, food and PPE to our sister taskforces in Hackney, Lambeth, Camden and Tower Hamlets.
During lockdown we provided almost 9,000 meals and care packs to people experiencing homelessness.
 In July this year the council asked for the community centre we were using back. However we are not deterred. Whilst we seek a new base, we have taken our work to the streets of Islington and Westminster and we continue to provide essential supplies, food and connection to our community.
The BBC recently featured our StreetMuseum and made a short film which you can see here
We will be there for our community as long as they need us.
Please support our work as we continue to work with homeless and vulnerable people in London.

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.
