1. Long-term solution
Beam gives homeless people a route out of homelessness for the long-term by giving them the skills to earn a living and sustainably support themselves.
2. Partnered with experts
Beam works with leading homelessness charities like St Mungo's and Shelter and our team comprises experienced entrepreneurs and experts in homelessness.
With our 100% giving model, every penny raised goes towards funding a new future for a homeless person - you can contribute to our overheads, but it’s up to you.
We show the costs of each person’s career progression to the nearest pound on their campaign, plus live data about Beam on our ground-breaking Transparency Dashboard.
5. Give responsibly
Beam looks after all your funds and spends them on the defined items on each campaign’s budget. Beam never hands out cash to the people we support.
When a person progresses into their chosen career, they typically contribute to new campaigns up to the amount of their own campaign: multiplying the impact you can have by supporting them.
7. Hands-on support
Each person has a case worker or Support Specialist, who supports them from launching their campaign all the way into stable careers.
8. Personalised, empowering model
People are more likely to succeed when they are empowered to play to their strengths and pursue their ambitions: every Beam campaign is as unique as the person behind it.
9. Beam works!
More than 80% of people who have been through the programme start work in their chosen career: we believe it's the best model to help homeless people to get back on their feet.
10. See your impact
Beam keeps you in the loop on the progress of the people you support via email and gives you your own "Personal Impact Page", so you can see how many homeless people you have helped get into work. Here's our CEO's!
