Manzell's campaign has fully funded! 🎉 A Beam employee is now supporting him on his journey through training and into work as a digger operator.
But other Beam members need your help. Support the greatest number of homeless people to train up and get into work by giving monthly.
Last week, I passed my health and safety test. 🎉 Everyone needs to complete this before they do construction plant training. So now as soon as I have raised enough I can book onto my digger course.
I would like to thank all my supporters very much. I don't know how I would have done it without your support!
God bless you all.
I'm excited to start my training . I've already been out to the training centre that I'm going to use, to have a look around.
The photo is of me getting familiar with the excavator. It will be good to get going!

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.
