Rahel's campaign has fully funded! 🎉 A Beam employee is now supporting her on her journey through training and into work as a hairdresser.
But other Beam members need your help. Support the greatest number of homeless people to train up and get into work by giving monthly.
I am so thankful for all of you that support me. To finish my campaign - that was amazing. I am so pleased with that.
Thank you 🙏
She raised £4,140 from 602 supporters to become a hairdresser.
I've started my Level 2 in hairdressing already and am learning a lot. My teachers and course mates are all really nice.
I want to stay at the same hairdressing college to do my Level 3 and learn even more skills. I hope to start working in a salon as I study as well. Thanks for your support!

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.
