Please watch this great video! It tells you all about WAG and our projects! Middlesex University students provide an in depth homeless toolkit.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
The purpose of this toolkit is to promote awareness of the plight of homeless people to change the negative perception that stigmatises homeless people.
This toolkit wants to challenge you as a reader to overcome your unconscious and conscious biases, and stereotypes of homeless to realise that they are not any different from anyone else, they are just not lucky enough to have a good support system.
Who is the toolkit for?
The stakeholders for this toolkit are: Working Action Group
The WorkingActionGroup is a non-profit community organisation, which is run by volunteers, who enhance and benefit the community for everyone. Their aim is to help homeless people through their homeless mobile multipurpose bus unit along with various methods such as a recruitment volunteer team, and the distribution of clean clothing, hygiene products and food. Lloyds Bank sponsors of School for Social Entrepreneurs & the Big Lottery provided a small grant of seed funding for their Action for Equality & Diversity project. Their objectives are to improve the conditions of homeless people as well as to provide sourcing of job opportunities, work experience and to find relevant organisations that offer support needed. To know more about their current project, see page 38.
