- Every year, we open up the opportunity to year three students in Fashion Design at Coleg Sirgar to work on a live brief to scale ROOF to fit all environments and body requirements.

ROOF is not meant to be an alternative to accommodation, but it is mean't to be a real time interim solution and option to fill the chasm between homelessness and having a home.
We're not here to undermine the need for social housing, we're not here to make life on the street so comfortable that a person wouldn't want to leave it (.....?!). We are however here to create an opportunity for people who live on the streets to get back on their feet, have the means to afford to live in rented accommodation, pay their bills and support themselves.
While we wait for a miracle to happen for the homeless through mainstream channels, we will continue on our mission to provide every homeless person with a ROOF and the basic human right of warmth, safety and comfort. ROOF is so much better for mental and physical health and wellbeing than a flimsy tent, cardboard mattress and street vent.
No matter what the official statistics say, homelessness is on the rise.
We are a social enterprise with no shareholders and without exception, every member of our staff is paid the Living Wage. We are not grant reliant but we are trying to fill the void which red tape tries so hard to mask.

Beaten to the World finals by an app
We were delighted to present ROOF to a panel of judges (including the founder of Change please) at the wonderful CONDUIT CLUB in Central London in early December 2018.
There were five UK finalists of which ROOF was one - quite an achievement as the project was then very much in its infancy.
A nerve wracking pitch and Q&A and a great experience and lots of great contacts made. We expect to be winners regardless of the outcome!
