WINNER: Change Please Foundation - Driving for Change: Change Please Foundation, East London FT and North East London Health and Care Partnership

Refurbished London buses are being used to provide an all-in-one direct intervention service for people experiencing homelessness in London. Change Please Foundation has partnered with East London NHS Foundation Trust and the North East London Health and Care Partnership for the pioneering initiative in Hackney, which offers mobile, informal, welcoming, and open access to the most vulnerable members of society.

The initiative has been designed and delivered in equal partnership with service users and offers practical support – from assistance for financial inclusion to haircuts – alongside vital early health and social care intervention. The judges felt that this was an excellent initiative with a model that is easily scalable. The team demonstrated how best to meet the needs of the local population and were clearly driven by passion; a well-deserved winner.
