We believe in being as open and transparent as possible. That's why we have a transparency page which displays all our outcome data in real-time. We also link the campaign budget to the items we intend to purchase on behalf of a homeless person using Beam.
Budget taken from Natalie's campaign.
When we're estimating how much a basket of items will cost we either include '(est.)' or link to a screenshot that describes our rationale.
However, in some cases we can’t include a link. Examples of this would be:
The specific details can't be displayed eg travel to and from training.
Linking to the item would make the homeless person traceable which breaches our approach to keeping people safe eg it includes the location of a service being used.
