Our response to COVID-19 and homelessness
During lockdown 1….
with our homeless taskforce partners we took over an empty community centre and prepared and dispatched 8956 care packs and nutritious meals to people in the emergency accommodation and to people on the streets.
We were on the streets every single day. Our aim was simple – to ensure no one in our community faces this alone.
For lockdown 2…
and any further lockdowns, we will do whatever our community needs. Please give if you can to support this work.

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.
In 2018-2019 we are grateful for the funding and support, given to us by the following organisations:
