Buses4Homeless Community Outreach Bus

Please help us provide essential provisions of food, PPE, toiletries, clothing, advice, help, support and love to those less fortunate. With the pandemic taking full effect, and the numbers of homeless people swelling on our streets, now is the time to take action and give to where it matters.

Thank you so much, it's so nice to know people still care!

The Buses4Homeless Project

Since the journey began back at the end of 2018, Buses4Homeless has successfully raised thousands of pounds towards building a ‘community’ of four converted decommissioned double decker buses and securing a viable, functioning site in North West London for the launch of its unique programme designed to help transform the lives of some of the UK’s growing homeless population.

• Bus4Shelter: providing 8 warm, dry and self-contained sleeping pods

• Bus4Dining: teaching them how to cook nutritional meals for each other

• Bus4Wellness: taking care of their physical, emotional and mental health

• Bus4Learning: offering soft & vocational skills to re-engage them into employment , apprenticeships or small businesses

Funding the Programme

Today, we are ready to welcome our guests on board so are now looking to raise £30,000 to help fund a comprehensive, holistic 3-month rehabilitation programme specifically designed for each of them with the objective of successfully re-engaging and reintegrating them back into society.

What will funds be used for?

With regular weekly access to professional support, counselling, wellbeing therapists and vocational training as well as daily provision of food, security and sanitation, we estimate it will cost just £30 to help transform a day in the life of one of our guests.

Our aim is to offer them a unique programme that will ultimately get them back into some form of housing within 3 months / 100 days.

This results in a cost of around £3,000 per guest from the moment they arrive on board to the moment we proudly see them reintegrate into the community - a small price to pay for restoring someone’s future.

Please give generously so we can help those in need.

Thank you in advance for helping us make a difference. It is hugely appreciated.

    Great job. Just the kind of whole human/whole life thinking that's needed.
