The Hidden Network of frontline workers making a difference

Published: 20th December 2019

The City of Westminster has partnered with six charities, including Look Ahead, with the same mission – to impact the lives of people sleeping rough. This centres around the Hidden Network campaign, which looks to highlight the work of organisations that provide services in Westminster.

The ‘hidden network’ refers to the dedicated professionals who impact the lives of those sleeping rough in Westminster. People like Seamus Manley, Contract Manager at Look Ahead, who works daily with people in our Westminster hostel.

What is Chat App Tap?

This represents some of the ways that you can make a difference in someone’s life if they are rough sleeping. It might start with a smile or a hello – a simple yet important step that acknowledges and recognises the dignity someone sleeping rough. Secondly you can download the StreetLink app or visit their website if you see someone rough sleeping so that they can connect to local services.

And lastly, you can give by tapping to donate where you see a Hidden Network tap machine. All donations will be split between six charities who work in Westminster, including Look Ahead.  It will provide hope to some of the most vulnerable people in Westminster and help rebuild lives. Every contribution makes a difference.
