Cardboard Citizens is the UK's only homeless people's
professional theatre company and the leading practitioner of Forum Theatre
in the UK. We work with homeless and ex-homeless people, including asylum
seekers and refugees.
We use forum theatre and performing arts to give
homeless people a voice - enabling them to reach and recognise their potential.
Our work gives homeless people an identity; it
builds skills and confidence, and supports individuals to raise and face
the issues necessary for them to make positive changes in their lives.
Cardboard Citizens works with over 3,000 homeless people a year in London,
with a similar programme of work now being replicated in Manchester and Liverpool.
Our key statistics:
Cardboard Citizens works with over 3,000 homeless
people a year.
The company runs over 450 workshops with homeless
people a year.
Each year we enable over 200 homeless people to
engage with formal education, training and support services.
Each week over 250 homeless people access our
This Way Up arts workshops.
Each year we provide over 400 weeks of paid employment
