The Big Street Sleeper Resource Map (Brighter Tomorrow Map)

You’ve seen the astronomical increase in people sleeping on the streets. Its despicable and needs to change. With politicians moving their policies in entirely the opposite direction; despite many studies showing that it costs the state more to deal with the issues caused than it does to support people and help them from falling into that state in the first place.

We need to do something, and so we’re creating a big map for free resources which societies most vulnerable can use find what they need to meet their basic needs, and begin to change their situation.

the van finally found its name, meet Conn(i)e!

It took a long time for a the perfect name to come. thank you to everyone who helped bounce ideas around with me until a name came up that was right for our big, fairly slow, colourful, and cheerful van. Conn(i)e is driving around the World spreading Connection, so the name is simply the essence and spirit of our van and road trip, and it seems to fit the reliable but slightly sluggish old girl like a glove ..perhaps a glove for all the happy hand prints our members decorated the side with :O)

So please welcome Conn(i)e to our community, and if you see her knock on the side and ask for the paint pens i have inside so you can add your colourful and positive art and decorations to make her look even more awesome! Conn(i)e has come a long way since the day i bought her. for a start, no rust, all the door locks work now (up from just one) and the solar panel and leisure battery mean i can cook and plugin my electronics inside.

“Take a Smile” from me :)

Take a smile:) its simple right? But people can’t believe that someone is doing this just to make others feel better. So when you are passing and you see people with big poster saying “TAKE A SMILE” who ask you to take one, what do you do? Smile, right? It’s so simple and easy.

Amazing bargains, from massages to gigs in your living room, painting and climbing weekends + support the Focallocal project!

Our community has come together to show their support the Focallocal project, and their kind and generous offerings have been astonishing and really creative!

This may be the only chance you will EVER have to have a professional band play a gig in your living room! when else will you get yourself a didgeridoo sound wave massage? or grab a professional photo shoot for a fraction of the normal price Or what about a rock climbing weekend in Wales?!? (as i write you could get both for £5!!!)

Kindness Auction, BBQ and Van Painting – and a big thank you!!

Success!! This event was a different than any we’ve run before because i have just left my job counselling troubled youth (the best job i’ve had for ages), bought a big van and begun living in it. I’ve done this because i have to explore whether Focallocal, the project i started can make a difference to the World. Huge thanks to everyone it was a fabulous day!!!
