We are taking part in the London Glass Door Sleep Out! We hope to raise funds and awareness for this great charity as they embrace and support many homeless people without showing judgement or holding stigma. For each £1 donated to our Glass Door Sleep Out page, to a max of £2,500 per charity, we will personally match this - £1 for £1 - with donations to DOTs London, The Albert Kennedy Trust and ShowerBox London. All four not for profit organisations work hard to support those living rough.

We support people, young and old, from many different backgrounds. There is no particular type of person we support. There is no particular type of person that becomes homeless. Any one of us can have our lives changed in a snap, leaving us without a home we can call our own. Being without a permanent home leaves people of all ages feeling vulnerable and insecure. It prevents people from feeling part of a community and friendship group that we all seek as a constant in our lives.

Feeling proud and part of where we live is an essential part of life for us to feel self worth and respect for our lives, the lives of others, and the environment we all share.
