We work with schools to increase young people’s understanding of homelessness and raise funds to support our projects across London.
Homelessness has many causes. It looks different for everybody, and can trap people in cycles from which it is hard to escape. Everyone’s experience of it is unique, as is their journey out of it.
Part of our charitable objective is to increase the public’s understanding of this issue, in order to reduce stigma and encourage more people to act. Working with schools is a key part of that.
If you want to explore this topic with pupils we can assist in a number of ways. That includes providing lesson plans, or even guest speakers to talk about homelessness in an age-appropriate way.
We also partner with schools to raise money for our work.
Fundraising events are a fantastic way to raise your pupils’ awareness of homelessness, and the donations generated make a huge difference to us and the people we support.
There are lots of ways that your school can fundraise for us, including running your own Sleep Out event. This involves pupils ‘sleeping out’ at the school overnight, which is great fun and gives them the chance to contribute directly to the fight against homelessness.
We can also work with you to create more bespoke fundraising activities that inspire pupils, empowering them to become fundraisers in their communities at any age.
We work with each school in a tailored way to ensure that you are fully supported to reach whatever goals you have. If you would like to discuss how we could work with you, please email Naomi.email@example.com
