We empower homeless people to improve their lives and wellbeing


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As the founders of Don't Be Shady are creative people themselves, the Accumulate charity resonated with us and we are proud to announce that we are working with the team at Accumulate. The Accumulate charity provides creative workshops to young, homeless people who are living in hostels or temporary accommodation in London. They also fundraise for scholarships for their participants to continue their creative education and study at college  – this is a life-changing opportunity that opens up a new world of positivity.

To give someone a helping hand with their education is something that the team at Don't Be Shady would love to support. That is why we are raising money to offer an Accumulate participant a scholarship.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

About the charity

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.
