BEAM -Empower someone to leave homelessness for good

Nov 2, 2021 | Community, News and Reviews, Uncategorized

Are you working with an Ealing resident who is homeless or at risk? Beam can support them into a new job and private rented property!

Residents can use Beam’s platform to raise funds towards employment and housing, including: training, technology (e.g. laptops and smartphones), childcare, travel to work, work attire, rental deposits, first month’s rent, moving vans and homeware essentials.

Beam’s caseworkers provide 1-1 support with CVs, applications, interview skills and tenancy training. Through Beam, residents also get priority access to local jobs with 90+ employer partners and properties in their price range.

Ealing resident Gordon shared with his supporters:

“Becoming homeless can be very stressful and energy-draining. You lose all sense of stability in your life. This is not ideal in any time period but especially during a pandemic. The emotional stress starts to become energy draining. All of these factors made it hard for me to secure enough work to financially propel myself into a secure housing situation.”

Beam raised £2,821 to pay for his rental deposit, first month’s rent, homeware essentials, moving van, internet subscription laptop, work attire and travel to work. Following this, he started a role in a warehouse and moved into his own private rented home!
