Story

Thanks for heading to my JustGiving page.

This is the first time I’ve done a half marathon, and I've given myself six weeks to train and fundraise for it. To say I’m a little nervous is probably a huge understatement! I’m running to raise money for Evolve and that’ll motivate me through the hard work!

Living in a big city, you can’t help but see the stark impacts that the housing crisis is having on people’s lives. It’s scarily easy to find yourself homeless and it’s so hard to find a way out of that situation. That’s where organisations like Evolve come in.

Evolve supports people across London who find themselves affected by homelessness. They offer so much more than a roof to keep someone sheltered for the night.

They believe in building on people’s strengths, aspirations and goals to help end the cycle of homelessness and help them move forward with their lives. Evolve offers a programme of support tailored to meet people’s individual needs, including housing, employment and skills training, mentoring and counselling. They work with young parents and children at risk of exclusion to build the skills and resilience that can help prevent homelessness. Evolve campaign to end street homelessness. They build affordable homes to help people move on to an independent life.

Evolve’s mission is to help children, young people and adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness reach their potential, and move on to live happy, fulfilled lives.
