Ipswich, UK

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


In November 2016 we decide to help the homeless of Ipswich. In January 2017 we was donated a Double Decker bus which was converted into a homeless shelter. We launched TIFFERS November 13th 2017 and started making a difference to some of those living on our streets in Ipswich. We currently have 5 residents on TIFFERS who are all now debt free, on rehab programs and almost ready to move on to their own accommodation. We have also moved 2 others into temporary accommodation and a further 2 into permanent accommodation.

Our 2nd bus CHEYS will be converted into an outreach bus that will visit different towns of an evening to help those unfortunately still sleeping on the streets of Suffolk. We will be able to provide fresh clothes, toiletries, drinks and some food. We will also be able to start helping those in need engage with any services they need and eventually give them the opportunity to have a bed on TIFFERS if required.

As with TIFFERS, CHEYS will be a community driven project in both fund raising and operating. The local community has had such an impact TIFFERS and is the driving force behind all we do.
