Jimmy's campaign has fully funded! 🎉 A Beam employee is now supporting him on his journey through training and into work as an accountant.
But other Beam members need your help. Support the greatest number of homeless people to train up and get into work by giving monthly.
Big hi to everyone!
My apologies for the delays in updating you on my situation since I received your support. The reason was because of my health and appointments and also because of being very busy with revision for an exam. But after all the struggle I have some happy news for you - that I passed my first exam with high percentage of 89%! This gives me more power to overcome my health issues and achieve my goal.
I hope this experience I'm going through will be a boost to others to have confidence in themselves - and an example to move forward in life no matter the obstacles. Thank you for giving me the chance to prove myself and I know there is more to come.
Love & support make talent! Thanks to all of you.
I wanted to inform you that I'm preparing myself for the course and waiting for to start it with full excitement and readiness. I enrolled myself officially for it a few weeks ago. I will keep you updated when the course start next month.
Thank you all!

Too often homeless people are forced to lie out of sheer desperation. We think it's better when relationships are built on trust and honesty. Beam verifies each member in 4 ways:
1. Referral: every member of Beam is referred by a registered homelessness charity or local authority.
2. Interviews: before their campaign launches, each member is interviewed twice by a Beam Member Manager.
3. References: we take references on each member from the charity who refers them and someone in a position of responsibility.
4. Profile: we take great care to verify information in a member's story is true.
It's your money.
We work hard to ensure that you can give confidently.
A caseworker or "Member Manager" is an employee of Beam who helps those referred to Beam to plan a crowdfunding campaign and supports them through training and into work.
All Member Managers are trained professionals who specialise in supporting vulnerable adults by focusing on their strengths and abilities.
