Fund independence for homeless Londoners
Every year Single Homeless Project supports hundreds of Londoners experiencing homeless into employment, education, and training. We know that for many of our clients, financial barriers and skills development are often the first stumbling blocks to taking the first few steps with their career and achieving independence.
We help our clients become job ready through 1:1 employment coaching, support with travel expenses and help to secure everything from ID to clothing. When our clients go to an interview, we know they are ready to storm it.
You can help someone take the next step in leaving homelessness behind for good by buying them coaching sessions, clothing or even an oyster top-up.
By buying from our online store, you will be directly supporting one of our clients. Clients like Patrick - London's happiest bus driver!
London's happiest bus driver - Patrick's story
After nearly twenty years of rough sleeping, let down by systems that should support all of us, Single Homeless Project were able to help Pat through his recovery, rebuild his confidence and help him to retrain as a bus driver!
In just one year, he attracted 66 commendations from passengers whilst driving the number 26 - and has gone from strength to strength ever since!
How we need your help this month
Recently I was released from prison. Under constant pressure I've been struggling to cope with the pandemic and life after been away. I have four children and things have been very difficult mentally for me since my release.
Single Homeless Project has been my support. My keyworker has been amazing in helping me find jobs to apply for and paying for my travel to interview - I'm so happy to have secured a position as a nail technician now!
Fund travel and 1:1 coaching for homeless Londoners
After a long period of homelessness and mental health difficulties Chris is now working full time as a Security guard.
“This support and funding has helped me immensely!
Having the opportunity to access funding for my career is great for people in my position. I have been able to purchase lots of things I wouldn’t have been to before. Thank you”
Help a Homeless Londoner get online
I felt trapped during the first lockdown and my substance use spiralled out of control. It got to the point of crisis and I realised I couldn’t solve the problem I was facing on my own.
Single Homeless Project covered it all - they asked me what my problems were and gave me the tools I needed to solve them. They helped me to fix my problems on a life-level, it was a whole package. I felt looked after and I was in good hands.
I'm planning on doing a sponsored sky dive for Single Homeless Project in August! I thought that would be a fantastic way to give back. It’s such a philosophical idea – confronting fears, a leap of faith, symbolic of what the charity is all about. I’m excited about it and it’s nice to have this continuing relationship with the charity but in a slightly different seat!
