Charity description

Cardboard Citizens logo
Cardboard Citizens changes the lives of homeless people through theatre and the performing arts.

Established in 1991, Cardboard Citizens is the UK's only professional homeless people's theatre company. The charity presents plays performed by homeless and marginalized people, so as to share experiences, problem-solve together and bring attention to the issues faced by homeless people today.

Through regular workshops and projects we enable excluded people to develop their skills and confidence in order to make a positive change in their lives.

Our nationally recognized plays aim to raise public awareness and understanding of the concerns faced by homeless people. Our Hostel Tour program aims to engage with all London's hostel residents, either as audience or participants so as to increase the reach of our support systems and work.

We also meet the practical needs of displaced people, supporting them in matters of housing, education, employment, health, career and personal development.

Charity No: 1042457
