Ruth's campaign has fully funded! 🎉 A Beam employee is now supporting her on her journey through training and into work as a carpenter.
But other Beam members need your help. Support the greatest number of homeless people to train up and get into work by giving monthly.
Thanks for all your help - it has got my funding to the halfway point which is great! 😀
And I have now booked my first weeks for my course.
Thank you for the support so far - I am looking forward to starting my course! We've raised enough for the deposit so I've started to enrol already. 😁
The training centre's courses are very busy but I should be training by the end of the year. 💪
It's great to be launching my campaign! 🚀
I had looked at so many options for training which were so expensive or did not fit in with my home life with my children. Using Beam means I can break out of the loop I'm in - the course is flexible, I can fit it in with family life, and start working in an environment I will enjoy. 😊
Thank you so much 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.
