Blogging assignment: The House of St Barnabas - #JohnsStory

Please tell us about the product or company you would like the blogger’s help with? 

The House of St Barnabas has supported London’s homeless since 1846.

2013 saw the evolution of its charitable work when it opened the first not-for-profit private members’ club, offering integrated on-site training and work experience to those affected by homelessness. Membership fees and donations support the charity’s work. The club, housed in the historic suite of rooms at The House of St Barnabas, is an engaging, innovative space where people can meet, connect, exchange and realise ideas.

It costs the charity £3,000 per participant to attend the Employment Academy, complete its training and mentoring programme. Today, the House of St Barnabas is asking 15,000 people to give just £5, which would enable another 25 people to attend the Academy and help them to transform their lives.

In Spring 2013, acclaimed Scottish actor Brian Cox (currently starring in The Weir in London’s west end) visited The House of St Barnabas and filmed an interview with one of the charity’s success stories, John Smallshaw. John is a former heroin addict who had been homeless on and off for 40 years. The film follows John from Academy graduate to one of the club’s employees.
