Homeless International is a British charity dedicated to supporting slum dwellers in the developing world by improving their living conditions, providing basic services and finding lasting solutions to their poverty. Homeless International works by supporting community-led projects and initiatives related to slum development across 11 countries throughout Africa and Asia.
One billion people currently live in slums and this number is expected to increase to 1.4 billion by 2020, without the continuous help and support of Homeless International and its members.
Homeless International was founded by Housing Associations and professionals in the sector in 1987. As a socially responsible RRO and Managed Service provider to the industry, PPS appreciate the complex issue of social housing and homelessness and as a result, wanted to raise awareness of the impressive support the charity provides.
On Thursday 12th May, PPS together with Homeless International hosted a very successful charity event in which key contacts within the industry, including Housing Association clients and suppliers, came along to support the cause and spread understanding of the importance of the charity.
