I am happy to hear your feedback and if you would like to get involved in one of our projects, we are always happy to hear from people.

The whole point of this is to get more people involved who agree with what we’re doing. This organisation is Wolverhampton-based so that’s the only area that we operate, although we are happy to make links with other similar or relevant groups a bit further afield.

  1. I would love to be involved in your projects.
    I am a green pixie hippie cyclist/unicycling artist from North Wales and I’ve just moved here about a year ago.
    I’m currently in college one day a week life drawing and ceramic sculpture.
    I particularly liked the ideas of clay ovens for the garden and creating energy with pedal power, or any method idea that’s efficient and more resourceful.

    I live in the Wolverhampton area and can give most of my time.

    Thank you.

    I found your site via Street Life. (the ‘mini-library’) What a wonderful idea this site and what you are doing represents. Via Street Life I’ve made contact (and will be meeting some of them next week) with a group of people who want to find ways to reach out to the local community. In particular the lonely – of all ages.

    So, yes. I am interested in knowing more about what else you do and, maybe, see how I can join in.

      Hi Alan,
      Thanks for your words. I very much like the idea of organising events for people to make new friends, etc. Please let me know if you’d like some help with that as I believe well-being is one of the most important things to support. I’m currently helping to organise a meet up for unemployed people in the city centre.

        Hi Elliot

        Any help or ideas welcome. The problem is that there are so many people out there with so many ideas of their own, where do you start? Focus on one or two areas first, I’d assume?

        I have a base I might be able to work from and there will be a meeting on the 22 July where I could start that particular ball rolling.

        Or I could try to help set up a group from those who have responded on Street Life.

        Or there may be other activities I could get involved with which could then be opened up to those I know via the other activities I’m involved with.

        Feel free to email me as a starting point and we can take it from there?

    Hi Elliot,

    Thinking about your offer to help:

    The starting point for my idea was to find ways to help bring together those who are lonely in the local community. It is hard to know where to start, as many people in this position will be hard to reach/have health issues etc . Some of the people I’ve been in touch with one Streetlife who seem keen to work with this have met up face[to-face but we are a long way from forming a group to work on this to then develope the idea.

    Perhaps a start would be to broadcast the idea to a wider audience and seek out people willing to be active? A good venue, not too expensive, would be good as well.
    I might be able to do something via the Lea Rd Church & Community Centre (With whom I have links) and a meeting on July 22 might enable me to find a way forward on this.

    Any ideas or useful people/groups I could contact could be a good start. Life Direct (Victoria St) told me that there was a group in the North of W-ton doing something like this. Maybe I should contact them via Life Direct?

      Hi Alan,

      I think the best thing to do is try to set up a meeting place near where you know of people who can make their own way there. If the Lea Rd church is a good location, then this can be the start of it.
      A central venue in the city would also be good and I know that Wild Bytes café on Darlington St would gladly welcome a group like this. It’s difficult for me to manage such a group but I’ve already spoken to the manager about this and she’s more than happy to host it there. There’s no cost other than buying drinks as you would anyway.
      The difficulty of course is catering for people who can’t make it and for this, it would be worth contacting the volunteer centre (WVSC) to set up a system whereby volunteers visit people in their homes to spend time chatting with them. Of course, official checks would be needed for this to keep things safe but the WVSC would be the best place to discuss this with.
      I hope that helps but feel free to ask anything else.

    Hi
    It would be great if you could design a poster that shows how to make one of these. I am in Bristol and would be willing to get some printed and paste them up so homeless people can make their own. There are always cardboard boxes around and I’m sure they could get hold of a knife to cut the slots.

    • D says:

      Oh – I’m talking about the Cardboard Bed

      • Elliot Lord says:

        I’ve done one and added it above. So far, I’ve been sketching and writing the instructions on one of the pieces of card itself. I’m meeting with a Homeless charity today to discuss how to take this forward so there are still things to do but I wanted to make it immediately available.

    Please email me with your contact details.

    I saw your very good piece on the local BBC news; reporting on the Birmingham University day you did. Looked like very good exposure.

  6. Hi I wonder if you could help I volunteer for a group called the red bag co who is owned and run by Chloe Avon. We go out on a Sunday in Birmingham city center and I was wondering if you would donate a few cardboard beds as I know there would be homeless people who would really benefit from them. If you would like to join us you are more than welcome and if possible we would live to get involved with you projects.
    Thankyou in advance. Please feel free to contact me.

    Hi,
    Congratulations on your invention! With millions of refugees on the move, this idea should be syndicated worldwide and help sought from cardboard manufacturers to develop the ideal cardboard and make it widely available.
    If you need free help with any legal issues, get in touch – I’m a barrister based in Bridgnorth.

    Kind regards,
    Alistair Mitchell
