CEO Sleepout

On Monday 29th October 2018, business leaders from across London will give up their bed for one night and help those who don’t have one. Will you join them?

You’ll be bedding down with CEOs and senior level executives, all braving the elements and sleeping outdoors to raise awareness and funds, each pledging to raise over £2000 to fight homelessness and poverty in London.

Our founder and chairman Dan Atkins is getting involved, and doing his part.
Please help support him by donating here.


Once we’ve sorted a roof over their heads, and a bus to provide meals to those less fortunate, the next most important thing we can provide is Education and Support. And that’s what the Buses4Learning concept is all about.

First we will work with the homeless to try to identify and help them overcome the events that lead up to them sleeping rough.

We will support their personal growth and aim to increase their sense of self-worth and self esteem by firstly believing in them and encouraging them to do good deeds within the community.

Whether that’s volunteer at a local charity, paint the local churches fences or any other deed that is asked of.

That will help each of our guests feel much better about themselves, and each will receive positive praise and encouragement from within the community, helping rebuilt their self worth and self esteem. From there we need to help them learn key skills to rehabilitate them back within the community and employement.

Online Vocational Skills and Training:

Vocational qualifications are a great way to ensure that the skills and knowledge you demonstrate in your job meet national industry standards. We will work with existing providers to provide our guests with the most beneficial courses to help them gain successful employment.

Finding New Buildings in the Dust of the Old

With the continued and growing emphasis on sustainability in construction we could be on the verge of a radical shift in how we think about the current stock of buildings. The time may be coming when we stop planning for building replacement, and instead plan for building reuse. That in turn would significantly change the roles of designers and builders.

The housing industry has proceeded at a red-hot pace for several years running. An all-time record was set in 1998, when 886,000 new-site single family homes were sold. That represented a 10% gain from the robust total of 804,000 homes sold in 1997, and an 8.1% rise from the prior record of 819,000 units in 1977. Single-family housing construction accounted for $48 million of the total $125 million generated in the industry.
