    Story

    Please help this research project become a reality!

    I am raising money to build a street stall cart for Focus e15 Campaign Community. I have been working with Focus e15 mothers who campaign weekly for decent housing in London - please read this story and donate! and follow my new Instagram: communitycatalyst

    Back in 2013, 29 single mothers were evicted from their emergency accommodation in Stratford and were on the brink of being made 'intentionally' homeless with their children until they started to protest and campaign.

    Their persistent activism helped them to be housed in the area and now, 6 years later they are still campaigning and protesting every week for decent housing in London. They help so so many people being evicted from housing in the area by providing support and action with the local council.

    They really do make such a difference, helping to stop people being made homeless and putting a stop to people being forced out of temporary accommodation. It is not fair that these mothers who are working and/or studying, alongside juggling looking after their children, are being forced out of their homes being made 'intentionally' homeless!!!

    In London there are 168,000 people living in temporary accommodation like B&B's, there is not enough housing! - 66% of these adults in emergency shelters are women - many being single mothers. You should look up the Bedrooms of London Exhibition in London where there is shocking and disgusting evidence of single mothers living with up to 4 children in 1 bed in one small room!!!

    Focus E15 campaign and protest for decent housing solutions each week at Wilko's in Stratford where 1 in 24 people are homeless.

    I really need your help to build this campaign! It is for an amazing cause!

    We hope to get enough funding to be able to construct a street stall cart together! Please help us to do this! It will make a massive difference to the campaign - the cart will help to provide them the recognition they need to succeed!
