Beam is a social enterprise that supports some of the most disadvantaged people in our society into quality jobs and homes. We do this through our innovative crowdfunding platform and 1-1 caseworker model.

If you're new to crowdfunding, it simply means a group of people raising money online for a cause – in Beam’s case, financial support for refugees and other groups experiencing homelessness.

It's safe and easy for members of the public to support a person's campaign, which will help them to secure stable work or housing.

You can also send a message of encouragement when you donate to someone, becoming part of their new support network.
