Adam is a former drug addict who spent 6 months sleeping on the street – now he’s a qualified bricklayer thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on @wearebeam.
A fantastic charity, it’s wonderful to see people who have fallen on hard times being given a second chance and we’re helping them to help themselves. Keep up the good work Beam. You are inspirational.
Beam is awesome! I love the personal link with the people I'm helping. I feel that the money I give is having a tangible benefit and helping someone get back on their feet. Beam is doing great things and I'm proud to be a small part of that! 😀
Humbled by the stories and happy to support the campaigns because of the transparency of how the support is being used.
Over 60 charities and councils refer people to us. We meet each person and together build a career plan based on their talents and aspirations. We then market their campaigns to people like you who fund them, helping them on their path to success.
For every 1 person sleeping on the street, there are over 30 people living in homeless hostels and other emergency accommodation. Beam supports this huge group of people, giving them access to training and a career so they can leave homelessness for good.
Some do. But we try and get the best for people, even when there are challenges. Each person on Beam has a support specialist and bespoke safety and wellbeing plan to address the risks in their life. We also collaborate with specialist support services and our referring charities.
