We are holding a 24 hour gathering on Saturday the 7th of December 2019 to empower the people in our community who are concerned about homelessness this Christmas to come and meet, be heard and consider the question:
"How might we co-create a future in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole in which everyone lives in a home of belonging?"
We believe that "Nothing for Us, Without Us, is For Us" and that is why people with past and current experience of being homeless will be at the heart of our Community Shakeup.
We expect to uncover new problems and discover new questions that are currently not being asked, let alone addressed.
"We are attracting Talented People, collecting The Data we need and the Stories That Matter in one place so we can co-create the ideas that are needed to take Concerted Action and make that Future a Reality."
We will spend the money raised here on supporting and taking forward the best ideas that come out of this process. Indeed the preparation for it has already unearthed some interesting perspectives. By empowering the voices of our community we will come alongside and bring the ideas to life with the money we raise.
We believe individuals can make a difference and we hope you will support us to empower our community to take direct action.
