What we do at Standing Tall

For people experiencing homelessness going through tough times, changing their situation can seem impossible. At Standing Tall, a charity in Birmingham, we know that a stable job can be the gamechanger.

In the New Year we have a number of living wage jobs ready in Construction, Hospitality and Manufacturing. We are working with individuals currently experiencing homelessness and matching them with the right opportunity.

Standing Tall employs the individual for the first 3 months. From month 4, the business takes on the longer term employment of the individual.

Our 24 hour Christmas campaign

In Standing Tall's 24 hour Christmas Campaign, the Founder, Christy Acton will going out on the streets of Birmingham around the clock everyday in the lead up to Christmas. He'll be talking to different people about homelessness and Standing Tall, making short videos of these conversations and sharing on social media.

We are seeking to raise £6000 to contribute to the first 3 month's living wage for 3 people moving off the Birmingham streets for good. 

100% of your donation will go directly to the living wage of these 3 individuals to move their lives forward for the long term.
