United-Kingdom (London)

ReConnect was founded in 2019 in London with the idea of changing the way homeless people are perceived and making them more visible. 

Local residents, passers-by, businesses and homeless people can reconnect by using a simple service exchange. That is, through a network of partners, homeless people can receive goods and simple services going from clothes, grooming and hygiene to food, water and Wi-Fi. A system of vouchers also allows locals and passers-by to help people in-need to access different services. 

One of the network's core values is for the integration of homeless people. 2 of the 9 volunteers have or are still experiencing homelessness. 

8 shops (Reconnectors) have decided to join the network and tackle social exclusion in London. 

Reconnect is London based for now, but is willing to spread out in the country in a near future.
