Accumulate uses creativity to enrich and elevate the lives of young people that are homeless and living in hostels and temporary accommodation. The Accumulate participants often come from difficult, complicated and diverse backgrounds, including abusive relationships, mental health and substance abuse, foster care and prison backgrounds. Through Accumulate they become engaged in something personally rewarding and meaningful, develop their self-esteem and sense of self worth and start to have the ambition to think and plan for a more positive future, whatever that may be. We also fundraise for scholarships so that they can progress their creative education at university - this is life-changing. So far, 15 people have received Accumulate scholarships and five of these have gone on to study on an undergraduate degree. None of this would have been possible without Accumulate.
