Alleviating homelessness through empowerment
University of Cambridge
Greater Change supports people who are homeless or at immediate risk of becoming homeless. They provide a giving platform that enables donors to donate directly to homeless people who need to reach a certain financial goal to move forward. For example, a rent deposit, skills course or identification documents. Non-financial support is provided by our charity partners.
