Event description
Award-winning start up ALICE has teamed up with We Make Change to conduct a workshop on technology and innovation within homelessness.

About this Event

Off the back of our first annual Homelessness Conference that was held in July, we're ready to bring you the next events that are aimed at changing the way homelessness is combated in London and across the UK.

Introducing ALICE - The Government backed startup has teamed up with We Make Change to bring you a workshop which looks into the potential impact of technology and innovation for combatting homelessness.

ALICE is a platform that brings transparency to social funding through the use of Blockchain technology. Aiming to bring trust back to the charity sector through payment-by-results mechanisms, their first pilot was run by St Mungo's with the support of the Greater London Authority to great effect. This helped to raise additional funds for rough sleepers in London through the use of a transparent, impact-based crowdfunding platform.

We Make Change is the world's first global social change network. The not-for-profit organisation has enabled people from across the world to make the change they want to see.

We are open and welcoming to anyone who is actively making change in the homelessness sector and we're all constantly learning. Of course it's also worth coming to meet others, grab a drink and connect.
