Living and working with London's street homeless
The Simon Community has been working since 1963 to alleviate the isolation of people sleeping rough, provide a place where they can gain a sense of belonging and foster the skills they need to move towards independent living.
We are a community of homeless people and volunteers living and working together in a spirit of love, acceptance, tolerance and understanding.
We aim to reach out to support and campaign for people who are experiencing homelessness, and particularly those for whom no other provision exists.
Cardboard Citizens’ new play commemorating 50 years of the Simon Community.
On Thursday 19th and Friday 20th December there will be four performances of a new play about the history of the Simon Community (3.00pm and 7.30pm each day) written and performed by Cardboard Citizens. Cardboard Citizens is a wonderful organisation which changes the lives of homeless and displaced people through theatre and the performing arts. Through close collaboration with us they are writing a play about the history of the Simon Community and where we are today. This will be a great experience for all those who participate and share the performances as the audience. This is a pay what you think ticket. There is no charge to book but there will be the opportunity to make a donation after the show. Tickets are available from: http://bit.ly/1aDIvuq . Also see the Cardboard Citizens website for more information soon.
