Hackney Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Every last Friday of the month from 8am-12pm at Haggerston Community Centre, we would provide the community with breakfast, goody bags and lunch. During the concourse of the day, we would hold advice sessions, provide help on domestic issues, health check-ups, and job hubs and hold other basic need workshops. There will be activities on these Fridays and entertainment from speakers and artists. We want to endorse a place where they can feel at home. A place where they are reminded that they are not alone. A chance to remind them not to give up on hope. A home that they can feel safe. This is not just any homeless project. This is a platform for all those that think they are invisible. This is a chance for us to end the cycle of homelessness. Today we challenge the perception that homeless people are not human. This could have been one of us. This was me 3 years ago on the streets of New York. This was me when I thought I could not make it. This was me 1 year ago and could be you.

What we'll deliver:

  • Feed 100 Homeless People A Month
  • Help 100 Homeless People Get Housing
  • Help 100 Homeless People Get Jobs

Why it's a great idea:

Someone was there for me and gave me a chance. So I want to do the same again for those who have no one. I want to tell you that you are not alone. In the Sapphire Community Group, you have a “Second Home”. We want to make things happen. Homelessness is on the rise and it is time we all do something about this.

Steps to get it done:

  • Opening a Homeless Centre
