You may remember a social media campaign we ran at the beginning of November encouraging people to vote for us to receive the highly competitive Natwest Skills and Opportunities Fund.

Well - we can now to announce that we got it! We have been awarded £30,000 to continue to provide creative workshops for homeless and vulnerable Londoners. We have been working hard to expand our workshop programme offering new and creative ways for people to build on a range of skills, from literacy to money management to stand-up comedy.

Lisa Caughey, Executive Director of Cardboard Citizens commented “The funding from RBS is vital. It allows us to offer support to the vulnerable people we work with, enabling them to build creative skills while also securing qualifications and training opportunities. Our work offers a much-needed community, helping people to gain the confidence and well-being needed to move forwards with their lives.”

Thank you so much to all of you who voted for us and continue to support our work. We couldn’t do it without you!
