Working Action Group was formed by a group of individuals who met via social media with an unmistakable vision and mission of how they wanted to fulfil the needs and impact the community positively. Offering a combination of skills, experience and expertise within specialisms. Products and services have been specifically targeted to create a hub - a one-stop community service; the aim is to embed equality and diversity and encourage educational excellence and entrepreneurial goals, combined with a resource pool to develop and grow financial cash flow into, our communities to improve the lives of disenfranchised and disadvantaged groups especially the homeless. We formed Working Action Group as a Company Limited by Guarantee a not for profit charity a social enterprise and community organisation. In 2016 WAG were selected by Lloyds Bank for the School of Social Entrepreneurs Social Enterprise development programme. In 2017 Levi Roots Reggae Reggae Sauce Entrepreneur became WAG's Business Mentor.
We have designed a Multipurpose Mobile Homeless Unit in order to help more people and offer additional services. Blackpool Transport have donated a double decker bus and we are in the process of fundraising £75,000.00 to convert and run it . We appreciate all donations of any amount via our link at the bottom of the page. More information is provided on our Appeal page on this website.
WAG delivers three successful projects:
WAG are now in the process of organising our Celebrity Fundraising Tour. To enable us to convert the bus we are planning an exciting line up of events and we are seeking corporate sponsors to assist us to ensure we have huge impact and market on a nationwide basis. We are also seeking media partners to come onboard. We can ensure that there will be lots of opportunities for great exposure and activation and Corporate Social Responsibility accountability. Come on board and help us to convert the bus to reduce rough sleeping and prevent homelessness! See some of the celebrities we have approached in our gallery!
Working Action Group has been helping homeless people by distributing, food, clothing & paying for emergency accommodation.

We wanted to do more, so we looked for a solution. We applied for the SSE programme sponsored by Lloyds Bank and funded by the Big Lottery Fund and we were selected! We wanted to create a Multipurpose Mobile Homeless Unit. So we searched for a vehicle to convert and Blackpool Transport donated a Double Decker bus. The unit will provide, respite care to reduce rough sleeping with sleeping pods and kitchen, shower/toilet and office facilities to encourage employment and enterprise. As well as access to health care professional and housing advice. It has been reported that over 8000 homeless people sleep rough every night. Please see our "Appeal page" for an in depth guide. We are now appealing for financial assistance to convert the bus. We are organising a Celebrity Fundraising Tour to generate support and donations to pay for the conversion of the bus. We have approached lots of celebrities to come on board. (Please see our photo gallery "see what we do")
However, right now we need, donations as well! We are appealing for sponsors for the: Hygiene Packs, the Bus and the Tour. We also need venues for the Celebrity Fundraising Tour and DBS checked Volunteers.
In our search for help we approached Floyd Mayweather's International Management team for help and they have been brilliant!
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
