“I have seen first-hand the ways in which the system can disempower people and hold them back from living the life they deserve.”
Alice, Founder of Power With
Growing the ‘Power With’ Community
Bristol and UK wide
An estimated 280,000 people are experiencing homelessness in England. The system all to often disempowers these people and holds them back from living the life they deserve. Even in a pre-pandemic world, we were connected only in bifurcated pockets, without many liaises between those in power and those impacted by powerful individuals’ decisions.
We bring disempowered and often overlooked voices to the heart of policies and decisions. This is critical to the ultimate goal of global, inclusive, and equally-empowered connectivity.
Power With exists to bring people with lived experience of homelessness into
these important conversations by providing them with a seat at the table, paid opportunities, and training. We act as a liaison between our community of experts by experience and potential customers to design better services and policies.
With Footwork's support ...
